Marco DiGiulio is an incredible winemaker and this 2013 Carneros Reserve Selection Pinot Noir is consumer friendly and quite delicious. Marco was the winemaker who made the reputation of Napa cult winery Lokoya. Under his winemaking the 97 vintage received 98 points from Wine Spectator Magazine and he continues to get incredible scores for his wines. This wine is primarily from Carneros’ Home Ranch Vineyard which has the perfect amount of heat intensity, fog and a night time cooling influence ideal for Pinot Noir. This wine is particularly silky and smooth. A fragrant nose of cherry, raspberry, and wild strawberry. Nicely layered with attractive red fruit including cherry cola, pomegranate, plum, and blueberry with touches of white tea, chocolate, and cinnamon spice. This wine will drink nicely for several more years and will pair nicely with veal chops, bouillabaisse, honey baked ham, Ahi tuna, and Salmon.

Carneros Pinto Noir 2013
 
Winemaker
Marco DiGiulio graduated with a degree in Fermentation Science from the University of California at Davis in 1985. He then honed his craft at renowned wineries including Buena Vista, Pine Ridge, Atlas Peak, Pezzi King, Girard, and Pepi. While making Pepi Wines, he also took charge of the Lokoya brand. It was at Lokoya that Marco’s reputation for making world-class wine was first established when his 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon received a remarkable 98 points in the Wine Spectator. Most of Marco’s wines score consistently in the 90’s among top critics, and in November 2007 Wine Spectator named Marco DiGiulio "one of Napa’s leading wine consultants." His wealth of experience and love of winemaking enables him to craft the finest wines from the California mountains and valleys that provide his inspiration.
 
Appellation
The Carneros appellation is distinct in that part of it lies in Napa County and the other in Sonoma County. Surrounded by the Pacific Ocean, the Coast Mountain Range, and the San Pablo Bay, it offers ideal terroir for producing world-class Pinot Noir: warm summer days cooled by maritime breezes and fog at night, and an extended growing season. The grapes for this wine were harvested from the southern edge of the appellation. The vineyards lie on a rocky bench with dense, shallow clay soil where they ripen slowly in the cool bay breeze.
 
Winemaking
The grapes were crushed to release the juice and transferred to the fermentation tank for 15 days. Native yeast was chosen to add complexity to the wine and 100% open-top fermentation, with punchdown twice daily, extracted maximum color, tannins, and flavor from the skins. The fermentation followed a long "cold-soak" that extracted the fullness of flavor, and allowed a longer alcoholic fermentation. The wine was pressed at dryness and sent directly to oak, where it aged for 11 months before bottling.
 
Tasting Notes
This classic Carneros Pinot Noir is deep and rich in color. Mouthwatering aromas of black cherry and strawberry blend beautifully with notes of toast and baking spices. The concentrated fruit flavors follow through to the palate where they are joined by black currant, chocolate, and hints of clove. The richness carries through into the long, lingering finish. A perfect accompaniment to roast turkey, grilled salmon, or chicken in mushroom sauce.
