In the glass, this Monterey Pinot has a WIDE garnet center with thick bricking edges and a thin translucent halo….
A sniff is a roundhouse kick of red raspberries and Red Vines licorice…. When I dive in for round 2 I’m hit with a bing cherry and cedar wood thing that I’m LOVIN’!
The palate starts light with more of the bing cherries that I got on the nose before some spicy floral notes come into play ———-> The mid-palate shows just a touch of salinity salt before a cola, cranberry, and anise ending that has me in AWE….
Here’s the thing, y’all ———> As with all the Big Sur Vineyards wines this guy shows a perfect balance of finesse and structure…. 🎧🎧🎧 Enjoy this Pinot’s fresh and bright backbone by pairing it with The Eels – Fresh Feeling (Live)…. Pour a glass, crank it up, and enjoy friends!
