I have never been impressed with Artesa’s Pinot Noirs. I do expect a lot from Carneros but this has none of that familiar darker colour than most Pinots. This Pinot was a bit too vitreous which was my first clue that flavour might be lacking in this bottle. All palettes were un-dynamic, fruit, structure were all very weak; there was a slight pepper and that was the only flavour I could distinguish. I keep trying Artesa to see if there might be a change in their wines.
