2013 Carte Blanche "Nobles Ranch Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir (Previously $50)

SKU #1453039

Nobles Ranch Vineyard sits high on a rocky coastal range, taking in much of what the Pacific Ocean and sun have to offer. Gold Ridge soils atop ancient seabed & volcanic sub-soils and precise farming yield brilliant small berries of depth, complexity and structure . The 2013 Pinot Noir leaps from the glass showing bright Bing cherry, tangerine oil, and hints of cedar. With a chance to open up, it revieals bright juniper berry, cherry, black tea, and dried thyme across a broad mid-palate. Rich and silky, the finish is a tightly run race between each element on display. A mere 250 cases produced.

At nearly 50% off, this might just be our most spectacular Pinot Noir offer currently. Though not a household name, the wine is backed by a history of wine production. Carte Blanche comes from the same family that owns Haut-Brion and La Mission Haut-Brion in Bordeaux. Founded in 2007, they hired non-other than world renowned winemaker Luc Morlet to create this unique expression of Sonoma Coast Pinot melding an old world style with a new world sensibility. While most of Luc’s wines sell for well north of $100/bottle, we were able to negotiate a one-time super-secret, special price on this gorgeous and elegant red. It possesses effusive red and black cherry on the nose with a hint of black tea and herbs. There’s plenty of red berry fruit on the palate along with just a pinch of wood spice. The finish is long and seamless. This is quite the beauty.

Looking for a stunning single vineyard Pinot from the Sonoma Coast that has a little bit of age and is under 30 bucks? Look no further. The Carte Blanche is a truly delectable wine with a lot to offer as far as flavors go. Bing cherry, dried Provençal herbs, and blood orange are just a few of many notes I get when I drink this wine, and damn is it a treat!
