This medium-bodied, aromatic Pinot Noir owes its broad strawberry and cherry fruit to its Monterey provenance, and its spicy, herbal high notes to its relatively small percentage of Central Coast fruit. The Napa lot was added to enhance the style and focus of the blend. Fermentation was completed in stainless steel tanks. Aged for 5 months in a combination of 25% French and 75% American Oak barrels.
Delicate floral aromas give way to lush flavors of strawberry and cherry in this delicious 2004 Pinot Noir. On the palate, rounded tannins support a long polished finish. A perfect match with roasted meat dishes, hearty pastas and cheeses.
