Silky and seductive, slightly spicy to keep you wanting more and very smooth, creating a refreshing mouthfeel.

Nose is charred fruit. On the palate, dark cherry, more charred fruit, minerals and sweet oak. A classic Monterey pinot at a great price point.

Well balanced with lots of cherry, vanilla, and good tannin for food pairing. Definitely worth revisiting.

This wine makes a great second impression. A very nice Coke bottle gummy note throughout and cherry. Of course cherry. Nice structure here. I would gladly drink this again.
