Winemaker's Notes:

Carmel Road, we've tailored our viticulture and winemaking techniques to capture the compelling character of our unique climate and soils. Our Pinot Noirs are known for their rich flavors and brilliant varietal characteristics. The wine is a rich and complex wine, marked by black cherry and roses with warm spice and refreshing raspberry tones on the velvety 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.
