2012 Carmel Road Monterey Pinot Noir

2012 Carmel Road Monterey Pinot Noir

Ultimately, the distinguishing characteristics of any exceptional wine are derived from the terroir of its vineyard sources. This 2012 Monterey Pinot Noir is sourced primarily from the very expressive Panorama Vineyard (76%) nestled in the foothills of the Arroyo Seco AVA. The elevated structure, character and grace of this wine comes from the artistic blending of fruit from two small parcels by our talented wine making team; the Rincon Vineyard in Monterey (13%) and Clark Vineyard in Arroyo Seco (4%). These vineyards have been certified sustainable by the SIP organization (Sustainability In Practice) since 2008.
