Smooth and lush, with toasty oak, cherry and herb flavors. This robust wine has plenty of complexity, although it’s still quite young and tight, with firm, ripe tannins framing the ensemble. A good candidate for the cellar, this first release is a fine addition to Monterey’s arsenal of Pinot Noirs.
