TASTE THE COOL CLIMATE OF HISTORIC CARNEROS
About this Thematic Tasting
Carneros is the first AVA to be defined by its unique climate characteristics rather than political boundaries. Its proximity to San Francisco Bay brings steady fogs and winds that are ideal for Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. This sommelier-led tasting with winemaker Chris Kajani unveils the inspiring truth of the Carneros difference.
Bouchaine Estate Chardonnay
35-year old vines on the southern border of Napa Valley’s Carneros district grow in a steady stream of cool weather providing intensity and depth not found in younger vineyards. You will find layered, lovely aromas and a rich, yet tangy palate.
Bouchaine Estate Pinot Noir
The fog, wind, and cold night time temperatures of the Carneros geographical area lend a regional identity to this definitive Pinot Noir. All fruit is hand harvested at night, preserving berry integrity. A tangy fresh cherry nose opens to smooth tannin and vibrant acidity making this a perfect wine for food pairings.
