The wine emerges from the glass with dark red stone fruit a hint of spice, nuttiness, and licorice. This is a lush and fleshy, Pinot Noir that is loaded with class and pedigree. The wine is medium to full in body and flavor and finishes long and strong.
Winemaker Notes: The 2020 “The Shop” Carneros Pinot Noir is in some ways a throwback to the riper, juicier style of the early Shop wines, but that is a product of this great vintage, rather than a change in style. I continue to pursue a fresher, more vibrant style for this wine in particular, and 2020 was no exception. Aged in a combination of concrete and neutral oak.
