Dried plum and bright cranberry highlights are expertly balanced with a hint of earthiness for balance. On the palate, lush, soft tannins marry with strawberry-rhubarb pie, muddled cherries, white pepper, and wet stone.

Grown along the rolling hills that slope elegantly down towards Monterey Bay, the grapes for our 2019 Monterey County Pinot Noir benefit from a long growing season, bright California sunshine, and a cool coastal breeze. The "diurnal shift," or daily fluctuating temperatures, ensure the vineyards get plenty of ripening during hot days and are allowed to rest throughout the cooler, even nights.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
The warm sun, cool fog and complex soil composition make Monterey County wine country idyllic and ideal for growing quality Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The defining characteristic of this Pinot Noir is balance, with flavor and structure that complement each other to make a truly elegant and food-friendly wine.
Production Notes
Grapes were sorted by both hand and machine before undergoing maceration. While fermenting in French Oak, grapes endured punch-downs three times a day for enhanced flavor extraction.
Winemaker Notes
2019 consisted of colder winter months, a mild spring and only a few summertime heat spikes. Harvest was 2-3 weeks later than previous years, not starting until mid-September. Overall, a mild growing season coupled with a later harvest made for almost ideal conditions.
Food Pairing Notes
Pair with medium-bodied dishes, to highlight the bright flavors with fresh fruits like plums and black cherries, or enjoy with grilled vegetables, roasted duck, or your favorite pizza.
