The 2007 Monterey County Redemption Pinot Noir is one of the few domestic Pinots that achieves quintessential Burgundian characteristics of acidity, age-ability, food-friendliness and finesse, but also offers a deep ruby color, bright strawberry and cherry flavors that are more typical of California Pinot Noir.
The grapes come from the esteemed Mission Ranch Vineyard of Arroyo Seco and harvested at 25.6 Brix. The loamy sand and decomposed granite soil composition, coupled with hot days and cool, foggy nights fosters nearperfect growing conditions that creates a wine of perfect balance.
Think of this wine as the intersection where "New World" meets "Old."
You will enjoy this now with lamb shanks, bbq-ed ribs, pastas with red sauce, or your favorite pizza.
