Garnet Vineyards Monterey County Pinot Noir 2013
"This is a Pinot with elegance and extract, but also with a lush body and silky texture. Aromas include ripe blackberries, cherry preserves, vanilla hazelnuts, and toasted French oak. I love the velvety richness of the attack. The flavors of dark red fruits and exotic spices just make this a juicy, delicious mouthful of wine" (Alison Crowe, Winemaker).
The foggy mornings and sunny afternoons in Monterey County create an ideal environment for growing Pinot Noir with ripe fruit aromas and silky texture. Because Garnet Vineyards farms their own vineyards, they control the winemaking process from vineyard block to bottle. Their minimalist winemaking allows the character of the fruit to shine through. The result: a balance of lush body and vibrant flavors, which is a true expression of the Monterey apellation.
