"The 2016 Pinot Noir Brown Ranch is a rock star bottle that’s for those who love texture and richness in their Pinot Noir. Beautiful notes of black raspberries, spiced meats, and flowery incense all emerge from this full-bodied effort that has a layered texture and tons of fruit, yet stays balanced and lively, with classic Pinot Noir elegance. Drink it over the coming 7-8 years."

Vibrant ruby color. Layered aromatics - chinese 5 spice, raspberry, crushed violets, and sassafrass. Both unctuous and vibrant on the palate - spiced strawberry preserves mingle with earthiness, with accompanying hints of chocolate in the background. Well integrated oak brings a tension and energy to this vintage of Brown Ranch Pinot Noir.

The Brown Ranch vineyard sits on a hillside within the Napa Carneros "banana belt" a specific micro-climate where the morning fog burns off earlier, warming the vineyard for a longer period of time than other sites in the appellation.
