Carmel Road Pinot Noir 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

This is a fruit forward vintage with aromas of strawberry raspberry mulberry and a hint of rose petal Silky tannins add structure without overwhelming the fruit flavors of strawberry jam and ripe red cherries

Carmel Road Winery is located in the heart of Monterey County where the air is crisp and the tempo is relaxed and measured. Most mornings our vineyards are shrouded in fog. Most afternoons a brisk Pacific Ocean wind blows southward along the ridge tops and benchlands of Salinas Valley delivering fresh, cool maritime air. For years our region was considered too cold and windy to grow world-class grapes. Today, Monterey boasts some of the most highly-acclaimed AVAs in all of California. Since 1999 Carmel Road has been producing stunning Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs from some of Monterey's finest benchland vineyards using a mix of proprietary and traditional Burgundian winemaking techniques.

This was a nicely balanced Pinot with decent dark red fruit, leather and spices. Soft drinking and a little bit bolder than some of the other Pinots out there. Would be nice with dinner but no food necessary with this one.

Rich Pinot, dark red fruit, supple raspberry/cherry. Velvety & an eternal finish. Paired with Ahi Poke.

Standard Pinot Noir - fruity, mild, tart. Navy Yard Bistro in BOS with Christina in Dec 2013.

A surprisingly good wine. I'm not a huge Pinot fan, most taste to light for me, but this had a good balance and an affordable price. 88 points.

The 2009 is a rich and complex wine, marked by black cherry and roses with warm spice and refreshing raspberry tones on the velvety finish.
