Kirkland Signature™ 2011 Pinot Noir - Carneros, Napa Valley
“The 2011 Kirkland Signature Carneros Pinot Noir is a blend of richness and elegance. The Napa Valley edge of Carneros provides aromas of ripe cherry and rhubarb, counterbalanced by darker black fruit and forest floor notes from the Western slopes.
"This is a classic Carneros Pinot Noir, displaying rich aromas and complex flavors woven together with a hint of spice from French oak barrels.” – Alison Crowe, Winemaker

The Carneros American Viticultural Area (AVA) sprawls across the vast, low hills of the Mayacamas Range before it slips beneath San Francisco Bay. Straddling the Sonoma Valley and Napa Valley regions, the Carneros AVA is noted for its cooler climate, Pacific Ocean breeze and fog overlay. Such climate develops a distinctive terroir and equally definitive flavor profile of its grapes: bunches that decrease in acidity and increase in flavor as they linger on the vine.
Pinot Noir grapes thrive in the Carneros climate, developing full, juicy flavors during the longer growing season, making for an incredibly pleasing Kirkland Signature Pinot Noir.
