A Note About Library Wine: Wine is a living evolving thing and the library wine collector is open to the palate adventure of vintage wines. Fresh, fruit forward notes in young wines can evolve into earth, spices, and tertiary aromas typical of older wines. While our library has been stored properly throughout, we can never anticipate exactly how a wine's palate may evolve in our cellar or in yours. (We always replace or refund bottles with objective flaws, like cork taint or transport damage, but do not replace or refund selections based on palate preference.)

The Manzana Vineyard always brings us an expressive sark fruit that tantalizes our taste buds and often is a key component of the Karmen Isabella Pinot Noir blend. The consistent, deep crimson color provides the prelude to the bright fruit aromas that taste and unfold in this wine. Complex layers mid-palate of forest floor, pine needles, and subtle tannins. There’s also a sweet, light tobacco melded with French vanilla from the varying degrees of toastiness in the oak barrels that harmonize into a well-structured, almost chewy, body. Manzana represents classic cool climate pinot Noir: it can be served now or cellared for five to eight years.
