Carneros Pinot Noir 2017

Quick note from a charity dinner event. 2nd bottle.
Ripe fruits scented with warm spicy and earthy undertone. Napa meets Oregon. Quite sophisticated. Good cellaring potential. Will look out for some bottles.

Carneros Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

Dark Ruby with aromas of ripe juicy berry fruits, herbs & sweet spice. On the palate flavors of black cherry & black currant with vanilla oak and earthy notes. Well balanced, fine tannins medium+ finish ending with fruit, vanilla oak notes and spice! Nice now and short-term aging potential. — 2 months ago

Reserve Carneros Cabernet Sauvignon 1997

This Truchard over-delivered on low expectations. Smokey and fully resolved, though past it’s prime it delivered Napa Cab essence and the class of an old CA gent. — 3 years ago
