2021 Monterey County Pinot Noir
Rich with hints of tart cherry, rhubarb, dried red plum, cranberry and earthy aromatics on the nose. The palate consists of strawberry and rhubarb pie, dried cranberry, muddled cherry and red plum with juicy acidity.
James MacPhail's Notes
Monterey County's warm sun, cool fog, and complex soil composition create the perfect conditions for growing high-quality Pinot Noir grapes. The 2021 vintage of our Monterey Pinot Noir is defined by its exceptional balance, with complementary flavors and structure that result in an elegant and food-friendly wine. This bright and luscious Pinot Noir pairs beautifully with a range of dishes, as its red fruit flavors and lively acidity perfectly complement earthy flavors such as roasted chicken with Brussels sprouts, mushroom risotto, and grilled salmon.
