This is fresh and clean on the nose with a slight balsamic edge to the coffee toned black raspberry fruit. Sweet top notes of licorice and dried orange peel. This is round yet focused on entry, with a wonderfully raspberry fruit tone framed with soft tannins and lightly toasted oak notes. The balance here is really quite fine, and while this is a touch simple, it delivers really nice, pure and intense raspberry fruit. This turns a bit more cherry on the back end and gains some light herbal/floral notes on the moderately long, slightly oaky finish. This is not fancy but is quite attractive and will appeal to a very broad spectrum of palates. 90pts

Crisp with peaches, apricots and pears. A touch of oak and a bit of vanilla. Tastes like a Chardonnay twice its price.

Candied cherries, a bit astringent and jammy, this leads up into a fairly balanced pinot that has some ripe fruit notes laced with a bit of black and red licorice. A succulent finish that lingers just the right amount of time...

The Monterey vineyards where our Pinot Noir grapes are grown offer ideal sun exposure, which ensures ripe fruit for us to make a rich, complex, fruit-driven wine. Seductive aromas of plum and spice lead to black cherry, currant, and strawberry flavors, a plush texture, and an elegant finish. - Winery

Made exclusively from cool-climate Monterey fruit that gives excellent balance to the warm flavors of sweet cherry and strawberry. It has a beam of underlying spice.

Monterey County provides ideal conditions for growing temperamental Pinot Noir grapes. Aromatic and juicy, this wine is great with lamb chops or wild mushroom ravioli.

Has a bright ruby color with generous aromas of red cherry and allspice. Rich layers of sweet strawberry and red plum flavors highlight the smoothly-textured palate, followed by delicate notes of ripe cranberry and sandalwood on the finish.

Winemaker's NotesWe source our Pinot Noir grapes from several vineyards in Monterey County. The cool Mediterranean climate that characterizes the region allows the grapes to develop full flavor maturity over an extended growing season. We pick the fruit in the early morning hours and bring the fruit inside for immediate crush and 48-hours of cold soak. This technique helps intensify the color and elicit more profound aromas. During fermentation, the grapes are punched down four times a day to extract the maximum amount of flavor and just the right amount of tannin. A majority of the wine is finished in stainless steel in order to retain the varietal's juicy fruit flavor and subtle color. A small portion is aged in small French oak barrels to impart delicate spicy nuances. The wines are then blended to create a medium-bodied, deliciously fruity Pinot Noir. 2009 was a great vintage for all California appellations and an excellent vintage for Pinot Noir. Light spring rains...
