The Monterey County Pinot Noir comes from the Santa Lucia Highlands appellation with a small percentage of Paso Robles fruit. It is fermented in stainless steel with malolactic aging done in barrels, aged in French and European oak for 14 months. Garnet in color, with aromas of strawberry, pastry cream, and nutmeg. This wine is medium-bodied with dusty fine-grained tannins and a long juicy finish. Enjoy with grilled salmon, braised duck, or stuffed Portobello mushrooms.
