Vinum Cellars Pinot Noir Monterey 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

The palate is full with ripe cranberry, sweet and sour cherry flavors and is wrapped in exotic spice flavors such as star anise and cinnamon and fold into a blanket of integrated French oak, vanilla finish.

Our basic winemaking philosophy is to work with great grape growers to develop the best fruit in the vineyard. We pick the grapes at optimal ripeness and gently process the fruit.

Our basic winemaking philosophy is to work with great grape growers to develop the best fruit in the vineyard. We pick the grapes at optimal ripeness and gently process the fruit. We are very experimental with yeast strains and use different cultures for each variety. Our whites are barrel fermented slowly and aged Sur Lies in small French Oak barrels. With our reds, skin contact is optimized by the use of small open top fermentors, hand punch downs and extended maceration before pressing. Our belief in the use of older French Oak barrels allows the varietal fruit of our wines to be expressed. We are committed to experimenting and learning new winemaking methods while preserving an old world approach. Read less

Full fruited and bold nose with notes of zesty cherry, dark earth and red currant. Bright and floral in the mouth with violet and black cherry playing against twiggy notes of licorice and jammy blueberry with cinnamon spice on the finish. A fun, refreshing bottle of wine that’s very approachable.

Dark black cherry aromas on the nose with black pepper spice and earth and tar minerality. Black currant and black cherry flavors are medium-plus in intensity and come with a leathery toast and some dried fig flavors. There's an excellent spice here with clove and cinnamon showing on top of more red fruit flavors of cranberry and strawberry. On the finish there's a warm spice and medicine note that is an interesting end and invites another sip. Very nice. 88 pts
