Our Castle Rock Pinot Noir was produced from grapes grown in Monterey County where the climate and soil quality provide excellent growing conditions for the Burgundian varietal. Here, the cooling air from Monterey Bay helps to produce a longer growing season for the grapes with extra-long grape time on the vines leading to a characteristic depth for flavor in the wine.
Our Pinot Noir is elegant and medium-bodied, offering aromas of cherry, tea and herbal spice. On the palate, the wine gives flavors of black cherry, plum, and spice. It is smooth with a silky texture and mild tannins. This versatile wine pairs well with lamb, chicken, veal, salmon and light pasta dishes. (from the vintner)
