2013 Pinot Noir
Santa Lucia Highlands, Monterey County
This is a classic Pinot Noir. It has the hallmark flavors of a Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot, including cherries, clove, herbal notes, and hints of black pepper. The wine is bold and powerful, yet surprisingly light on the palate due to bright acidity. You’ll love the balance of fruit and earthy flavors. And you’ll wonder how it would pair with a nice pork loin or duck breast while you contemplate opening another bottle.
