Schug Carneros Pinot Noir 2014
This classic Carneros region Pinot Noir offers a wide range of flavors and aromas, in the tradition of the finest red Burgundies of France. "Clonal diversity" is achieved by carefully blending several vineyard lots, each retaining its own unique clonal signature in the blend. The result is a complex wine with a rich bouquet of cherries, berries and hints of spicy new oak. It has flavors reminiscent of black cherry, currant and strawberry, followed by a rich, spicy texture and a long silky finish. This wine pairs nicely with lamb, duck, even grilled fish, and will improve with additional cellaring for 2 to 5 years.
Wine AdvocateI tasted three Pinot Noirs from Schug. The 2014 Pinot Noir offers straightforward cherry, pomegranate and a touch of allspice in a light to medium-bodied, rather one-dimensional style to drink over the next several years.
