The 2006 Pinot Noir Carneros has aromas of bright bing cherry, fresh ground nutmeg, and earthy wild mushroom. In the mouth, the wine shows intense bright blackberry and plum fruit with undertones of sweet mocha and clove. This is a wine of great depth with the long, supple finish considered a hallmark of Carneros Pinot Noir.
100% Pinot Noir. Before there was a California wine industry at all, there was Buena Vista. Founded in 1857 in Sonoma, it is California's first premium winery, boasting a history as colorful as it is proud. The original stone winery contains Sonoma's first wine caves. Its founder, the Count of Buena Vista, Count Agoston Harazthy, saw in Sonoma one of the great winegrowing regions of the world where he laid the foundation for California viticulture when he brought thousands of premium grape vines from Europe.
