The nose is bright and fresh, starting off quite melony at first with building notes of pear, peach sweet apple blossom and a hint of honeycomb adding complexity. A nice round yet rich feel on entry is followed by a bright mid-palate which sees good acidity offering nice cut and setting off the deep, golden fruit tones and melony fruit well. There’s a touch of creaminess that develops on the backend and leads to a lightly toasty spice and mineral finish. I could see this pairing very well with a light dish of pumpkin ravioli in a light walnut sauce dusted with pecorino cheese. 88pts

"Monterey is an ideal place to grow Pinot Gris


Winemaker's Notes:

"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." -Winery
