Winemaker's Notes:

At Carmel Road, we are convinced that fruit sourced from the lower bench land vineyards of Monterey can evolve into some of the finest expressions of Pinot Noir. Clark Ranch, in the Arroyo Seco region, highlights that potential with its rich color, lush fruit aromas and ripe cherry fruit intensity. We hope you will find a place for this wine in your cellar and at your table.

About Carmel Road:

Founded in 1996, Carmel Road's mission is to produce wine showcasing the unique nature of Monterey County terrior. Our debut release, the 1997 Chardonnay, demonstrates the potential of the Monterey County appellation to produce world-class wines. Located just a few miles over the ridges from the Pacific Ocean, Carmel Road produces wines from vineyards set against the Santa Lucia range and in the Gabilan foothills. Under the care of Winemaker Dan Kleck, the fruit emerges in wines exhibiting both a studied elegance and superb richness.
