2005 Saintsbury Brown Ranch Vineyard Carneros Pinot Noir

Winemaker Jerome Chery has acquired a sensibility about Pinot Noir from his years with Ted Lemon, and this wine from the winery’s flagship vineyard, is a vin de garde for the Carneros appellation. · Brown Ranch wines (the 2006 was a barrel sample) show marvelous purity of fruit with all kinds of layered interest such as spice, earth, forest floor and animale.
