The 1998 Casa Carneros Pinot Noir is the seventh vintage released from this small, family run winery. The vineyard was planted in 1989 and was in full production by 1998. Grapes from all eight selections of Pinot Noir in the Casa Carneros vineyard were vinified separately, and went into the ultimate blend. The selections in this vineyard include: Swan, Hanzell, Chalone, St. Clair, UCD5, UCD12, UCD18 and UCD23.
Casa Carneros 1998 Pinot Noir, Los Carneros, Estate Bottled

This wine was fermented in small, half-ton bins, a small scale approach to winemaking that ultimately produces a rich, complex and extracted Pinot Noir. This is a wine with layers of dense fruit balanced by firm tannins with the structure and velvety texture that is the hallmark of a fine Pinot Noir.
