Winemaker's Notes:

At Carmel Road, they've tailored their viticulture and winemaking techniques to capture the compelling character of their unique climate and soils. Their Pinot Noirs are known for their rich flavors, firm acidity and brilliant varietal flavors.

The 2006 is an earthy and elegant wine, marked by red currant, red cherry, warm spice, forest aromas and a toasty oak finish.

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.
