Winemaker's Notes

The grapes for our Monterey County Pinot Noir come from the coastal foothill regions in the Salinas Valley. In the cellar we work hard to maintain the character and richness of this wonderful fruit. The wine features rich aromas of tart black cherries with hints of both clove and nutmeg. Ripe flavors of raspberries and cola follow on the palate. A small amount of Petite Sirah adds richness, giving the wine additional weight. This is a full-bodied wine with balanced acidity and a supple mouthfeel. It has the elegance to work well with turkey or other fowl, meaty fish like tuna or salmon, and pasta with a creamy wild mushroom sauce.

My parents and I tried this wine on recommendation from a food and beverage manager at one of the country clubs in Monterey - after tasting about 30 other wines - this was our pick. It was perfect and most importantly, everyone agreed with us. It's hard to find a red that will please 40 wine drinkers, but this lovely pinot worked.
