2006 Artesa Estate Reserve Carneros Pinot Noir

14.35 alc., 3,500 cases, $40. Aged in 50% new French oak. · A step up in aromatic intensity from the regular Carneros bottling. Aromas of red berries and cherries touched by herbs. Friendly in the mouth with good red fruit intensity, an appealing spiciness, and a silk and satin texture. The finish has noticeable persistence. Reviewed February 12, 2009
