1994 Saintsbury Garnet Carneros Pinot Noir ($13)

Wine of the week

November 01, 1995|By Michael Dresser

Saintsbury's Garnet bottling of California pinot noir has been a delicious light red wine for many vintages now, but the 1994 vintage takes it a step beyond. An extra measure of concentration gives it extra length and makes it the best Garnet to date. With its generous fruit and racy acidity, it makes for an excellent restaurant wine. It's a perfect wine for bridging the gap when one diner is having fish and the other a red meat.
