About The Wine
Davis Estates 2018 Pinot Noir displays a rich, dark ruby hue in the glass. Aromatics abound with strawberry, cherry, raspberry, dark cacao and subtle hints of violet and mint. Cherry cola, orange peel and a subtle hint of clove on the palate, luscious tannins and balanced acidity give this wine a savory character that can rival your big reds around the barbecue.
Our Carneros vineyard is located in the Napa portion of this unique appellation that straddles the southern regions of the Napa and Sonoma valleys. It sits just above sea level, where the Napa River flows through wetlands to the San Pablo Bay. The morning fog and maritime breezes from the bay create a longer, cooler growing season that is ideal for our 4 acres of Chardonnay and 3 acres of Pinot Noir. The clay subsoil and loam topsoil along with the cool climate help to create the ideal terroir for growing fruit with balanced color, flavors, tannins and acidity.

92 Points - Jeb Dunnuck
Pretty red fruits, sassafras, spice, and floral notes all emerge from the 2018 Pinot Noir, a ripe, well-concentrated, textured Pinot Noir that stays nicely balanced. Enjoy this pleasure-bent, textured effort over the next 2-4 years
