Layers of smoke, earth, licorice, hibiscus. Quite complex for the price, and much more Burgundian than Monterey, to its credit. Taste this side by side with the winemakers other Pinot and see what a funny world pinot can be. No two are even close in similar character.

Warm, deep, herbal. Dried cherry coated in chocolate. Yum!

Medium to full body with full dark fruit flavor. Not very dry but still nice. Hint of pepper maybe? Not acidic! Good wine all around but prefer it WITH the meal, not before.

Bottle may have been corked, not sure how with a screw cap but tasted very 'green' as well. If not, definitely would pass on this. Based on other reviews I'm thinking our bottle had issues.
