Aromas of red and dark cherry, raspberry and strawberry are joined by subtle touches of vanilla and toasty oak. The palate is medium-bodied with silky tannins, a soft round mouthfeel, excellent acid balance and notes of earthiness on a long, lingering finish.

“An overall well-balanced riper expression of Pinot Noir with notes of red cherry, pomegranate, raspberry, chocolate, anise, wooded forest and damp forest floor. Best Buy.” — S.B.
The grapes for this wine were primarily grown in the Arroyo Seco appellation of Monterey County, which sits on a gravelly alluvial plain beneath the Santa Lucia Mountains. Cool winds from Monterey Bay ensure gradual ripening and development of vibrant flavors. The rocky soils allow excellent drainage, enhancing intensity and promoting balanced ripeness and acidity.
Great with mushroom dishes, mac & cheese, mussels, bleu cheese!
