Winemaker's Notes

Wente Vineyards had been growing Pinot Noir in the Arroyo Seco region of Monterey since the 1960s. It is the ideal region to grow this Burgundian varietal because of the long, cool growing season. This perfect climate allows the grapes to fully ripen and develop deep fruit, spice and other flavors. The wine derives its name from the creek along which our Pinot Noir vineyards grow. The gravelly-loam soils found here, rich with shale and limestone deposits, impart desirable earth and mineral qualities to the wine.

This vintage of Reliz Creek Pinot Noir has smoky aromas and layers of spicy oak, raspberry and solid tannins.

Alcohol: 13.5%
