2010 Campesino Papi y Chula Vineyard Los Carneros Napa Valley Pinot Noir

14.2% alc., pH 3.68, TA 0.65, 56 cases, $38. Aged 18 months in 100% second fill French oak barrels. · Medium reddish-purple hue in the glass. Enticing aromas of cherries, oak, hazelnut, chocolate and rose petals. Very flavorful mid weight core of cherries, brambly raspberries and black plum with an earthy and subtle oak undertone. Easy to drink with supple tannins, and a refreshingly crisp and teasing finish. Gets better over time in the glass and even better the following day from a previously opened and re-corked bottle. Very good. Reviewed March 23, 2013 WINERY » ARTICLE »

2008 Campesino Cellars Papi y Chula Vineyard Los Carneros Napa Valley Pinot Noir

14.1% alc., 50 cases, $38. Aged 18 months in seasoned French oak barrels. · Moderate violet color in the glass. Highly perfumed with deep aromas of earth-kissed plums, black raspberries, underbrush, oak and cardamom spice. The dark berry and stone fruit flavors are perfectly ripe, delicious and persistent, with appealing accents of grilled mushrooms and faint oak. I thought I could taste the soil in this wine. Beautifully balanced with supple, well-tamed tannins. Hard to imagine how something so grand can come from something as simple as a grape. Quintessential Carneros.
