Schug Carneros Pinot Noir 2018
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Carneros|
"Dried strawberries with bark and fresh-mushroom undertones. Black-tea notes, too. Full-bodied, yet tightly wound with firm tannins that frame the wine nicely. Soft, creamy tannins. Drink or hold." James Suckling 93 points Drink 2023+
Vibrant cherry, plum and currant flavors are supported by fine-grained tannins. Hints of hot stone emerge midpalate, leading to a finish that lingers with cedar and spice accents and zesty minerality. Drink now through 2023. 4,120 cases made.
Thick, dense red fruit marks a core of substantial tannins and oak-a powerful body weight that settles into a refined freshness of underlying acidity. Dried herb and tea underscore its fundamental earthiness.
