    Though still on the light side (it is Pinot Noir, after all), I find the Carpe Diem to have just a bit more texture than most Pinot Noirs of it's caliber. These added dimensions are beautifully obvious on the nose, where aromas of cool strawberry pie pull you in immediately. Likewise on the palate, the extra texture is super smooth, but doesn't disappear without making some it's delicate nuances known. Perfect for Pinot fans who need something with a touch more weight for a meal or Merlot/Cabernet fans who want something a bit lighter.

    The Carpe Diem Pinot Noir is classic Anderson Valley Pinot Noir. There is a beautiful wave of ripe, red strawberry and cherry that pops on the fuller-than-expected palate. And while there's a touch more weight than usual, the Carpe Diem has a bright, playful mouthfeel that is matched by lively baking spices and rose petals on the palate. This is a fun, inexpensive Pinot that will delight at every holiday occasion this season!

    The 2014 Vintage of Carpe Diem is very well balanced, and a perfect expression of Anderson Valley Pinot. Tasting this bottle reminded me of what I loved so much about Anderson Valley in first place. With notes of cranberry, cherry and a touch of cinnamon, this bottle should go perfectly with any dinner scenario for the light bodied red drinker.

    If I wanted to trick someone in a blind tasting, I would pour this and watch them guess Pinot Noir from Burgundy. This wine is very delicate with a pleasant amount of strawberry fruit that is rounded out with hints of clove and spice. This is a crisp, nearly tart wine that is perfect for the upcoming holiday dinners.
