This outstanding vintage gave us a complex nose that offers up both savory and sweet tones; ripe plum and forest floor aromas are highlighted by notes of violet and cocoa powder. On the palate, pomegranate and blackberry take center stage, highlighted by notes of anise and mocha. The well-integrated acidity and ne-grained tannins create an elegantly structured wine.
This inaugural vintage of Monterey Pinot Noir offers seductive aromas of wild strawberry and fresh tea leaves...subtle notes of earthiness and minerality complement the fruit-driven intensity in the nose. The palate provides layered flavors of strawberry jam and black licorice, with hints of coffee bean and bramble notes that lead to a long and fleshy finish.
