SUPER VALUE! IS THERE A BETTER BUY FOR SERIOUS PINOT IN THE MARKET PLACE? WE DON'T THINK SO!!

"Spicy, almost peppery, with some cedary undercurrents to the macerated red fruit flavors. Crisp finish. Drink now. 120,000 cases made. -KM" (WS)

"GOOD VALUE, We must admit to double checking the price of this surprisingly expressive, exceptionally well-focused wine and are amazed that a $15.00 Pinot Noir can be as good as it is. It has the near-velvety texture, the careful crafting, the creamy oak highlights and the keen, ripe cherry fruit of a Pinot costing far more than it does, and it has the balance to keep handily in the cellar for a number of years. A genuine bargain by any standard, it is one that price-conscious Pinot Noir fans should consider buying by the case. Reviewed: September 2019" (CG)

Winemaker Notes:
Arroyo Seco appellation of Monterey County, which sits on a gravelly alluvial plain beneath the Santa Lucia mountain range. Cool winds from Monterey Bay ensure gradual ripening and development of vibrant flavors. The rocky soils allow excellent drainage, enhancing intensity and promoting balanced ripeness and acidity.

Food Pairing Notes:
Rare fillet steak and carpaccio, grilled lobster, brie, milder blue cheeses.
