San Simeon - Pinot Noir - Monterrey

About This Item

Overview: We farmed the grapes for our San Simeon 2021 Pinot Noir in our estate vineyards located in the Monterey AVA, a cool appellation moderated by the Monterey Bay and Pacifc Ocean directly to the west. In this region, morning fog, sunny afternoons and cool evening breezes create ideal conditions for growing the Pinot Noir variety. While other areas of California can experience extreme heat, Monterey County is often covered in a marine layer, particularly in the summer. This extended coolness results in great natural acidity in our Pinot Noir. 

Tasting Notes: Captivating fruit aromas of black cherry, raspberry and rhubarb lift from the glass aside notes of dark chocolate, black pepper, strawberry jam and a hint of fennel. Similar characteristics fill the mouth joined by distinctive black cherry and a pleasant note of spicy cinnamon on the finish. The wine's texture is rich and round, promising pleasurable drinking for years to come. 

Pairing: The San Simeon Pinot Noir shines with all classic Pinot pairings. Some particular favorites are pork, salmon and mild cheeses.
