Domaine Carneros Pinot Noir Carneros 1999, 89 points

Domaine Carneros Pinot Noir Carneros 1999 -89 points
USA, California, Napa Valley, Carneros
The 1999 Pinot Noir is filled with black raspberry, wild cherry, and chocolate. Very earthy nose with some real strong green peppers. I love the old world feel to it. The palate is elegantly structured and soft with a velvety feel. It’s not hot at all and very little tannins which lets the strong cherry flavors come out. This 99 is a mature wine. Lots of sour cherry and a touch of blackberry on this medium palette. The finish has some good hang-time and is nice all the way through. Definitely worth a try for 30 bucks.
