In a nutshell: Twirling with cherries, earthiness, and a hint of spice this is a delightful performance in a glass.
The lowdown: A delicious Californian Pinot Noir that epitomises Monterey's Central Coast elegance. It unfolds with a graceful interplay of red fruit cherry and raspberry, all wrapped in a subtle, earthy embrace with hints of oak. The wine's silky texture and lively acidity make it a captivating and versatile choice.
The vineyard sites benefit from cooling Pacific breezes which is perfect for optimizing the quality of Pinot Noir fruit. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks after which about a third of the blend spends 8 months on medium toast French oak which add a gentle hint of dark spice.
When to drink: For a harmonius pairing go for things like roast duck, wild mushroom risotto, or grilled salmon.
