Winemaker Jeffrey Stambor Notes
Our 2006 Beaulieu Vineyard® Carneros Pinot Noir displays vibrant layers of dark plum, raspberry and blueberry fruit character. Hints of espresso and cocoa powder add complexity to the rich fruit aromas and silky, expansive flavors. The wine is well structured, with supple, rounded tannins and long-lasting fruit and spice notes on the finish. Winemaker Domenica Totty loves this wine with rich macaroni and cheese with shaved truffles. It also makes an elegant complement to grilled salmon, pork or poultry.

We have fully captured the expression of the Los Carneros region—at the southernmost tip of Napa Valley—with our attention to detail. Three days of pre-fermentation maceration for gentle color and flavor extraction, who ...more... le-berry fermentation with punch-downs in open-top fermenters and in-barrel malolactic fermentation developed the exquisite flavors. We aged the wine on the secondary fermentation lees in small oak barrels to mature the flavors and add hints of toasty spice.
