Truchard style highlys the bright, crisp and clean style that the Carneros appellation is known for. According to Antony Truchard II, their Pinot Noir closely resembles Burgundy style that is more aromatic and earthy.
The 2015 vintage was noted for its small crop size and intense flavors and structure. This is one of our most concentrated vintages, showing rich and opulent now and has the ability to age for 10-15 years. The 2015 Pinot has aromas of black cherry, pomegranate, and wild strawberry with hints of rhubarb, tea, and earth. The mouth is silky with flavors of cranberry, ripe plum, and sweet vanilla. Firm acidity and delicate tannins focus the palate and provide a lingering finish of spice and red fruit. 14.1% alc.
