Fragrant heirloom roses, ripe black cherries and a touch of tobacco invite the senses into this approachable and enjoyable Chalone Monterey Pinot Noir. The red fruit brightens across the palate, picking up raspberry and spice. Soft and silky through the middle, the wine crescendos on the finish, leaving a vibrant, juicy memory in the mouth — an excellent match to wild mushroom flatbread drizzled with a touch of truffle oil.
At Chalone Vineyard, we believe that great wine comes from great vineyards. The cooling effect of the nearby Pacific Ocean allows the grapes to slowly ripen on the vine, giving our Pinot Noir its soft, velvety texture and lush berry aromas. (from the vintner)
