Truchard Vineyards’ 2006 Pinot Noir was produced from the winery’s estate where vines are planted in several select sites that take full advantage of the thin soils, rolling hills, and cooler temperatures that combine to make the Carneros region ideal for Pinot Noir. The vines range from 10-32 years in age and provide a unique element of aromatic fruit, spice, and texture to the finished wine.
Truchard’s 2006 Pinot Noir has rich, smoky aromas of plum, wild strawberry, and rhubarb, accented with subtle notes of citrus blossom and tea. The mouthfeel is silky-smooth, with flavors of cranberry, black cherry, and sweet vanilla. Bright acidity and delicate tannins focus the palate and provide a lingering finish of spice and red fruit.
Wine News magazine rates the Truchard 2006 Pinot Noir 92 Points and Wine Enthusiast awards it 91 Points, calling it an “elegant exposition of Carneros Pinot Noir.” This subtle wine captures classic Pinot character with finesse, yet bright fruit flavors, and proves to pair will with lamb, smoked salmon, and filet.
