Clos Du Val Carneros Estate Pinot Noir 1998
About the Region
More correctly called Los Carneros, this region in the foothills of the Mayacamas Mountains spans parts of both Napa and Sonoma counties. Cooler than most other parts of the region, it produces wines with good acidity, typically lighter and more elegant than their lowland counterparts. Pinot noir and chardonnay are the specialties here.
