Carter Cellars’ Pinot Noir turns heads!

Ancillary is owned by Marc Carter of Carter Cellars 100 point Cabernet fame!  But since Carter has become synonymous with Cabernet, it was only fitting to call his Pinot Noir project “Anciallary”.  The wines are made by Mike Smith who started his winemaking career under the direction of the talented Thomas Brown at Schrader Cellars in 2001  Mike is also the day-to-day winemaker for a number of successful wineries including of course Carter Cellars, Myriad, Quivet Cellars, 12c, Scarlett.

The more the spectacular Sangiacomo vineyard matures, the more dramatic its wines become. rich, concentrated and compelling, this is an epic Pinot Noir. The Sangiacomo signature of hyper-red fruit notes combines with good acidity and a touch of minerality to add poise and precision. beautifully designed dark ruby color commingles with big, sweet bouquets of kirsch liqueur, raspberries, red currants & pomegranate. on the palate, rich flavors of cherry compote and mulled holiday spices are supported by hints of lavender, flint and gravel. while there is a smooth, velvety ripeness to this wine, the lingering finish has a nice grip that bodes well for a long life. enjoy over the next 3-7 years.  Very small production.
