2009 Monticello Vineyards Estate Grown Pinot Noir
Our Estate Grown Pinot Noir is produced from grapes that we grow in the Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley. This region of Napa Valley provides a cool climate from which we produce Pinot Noir grapes that are lush with abundant rich fruit flavors.
This 100% Pinot Noir is sharing some beautiful tones on the nose. I find strawberry, vanilla, cola and spicy dried flower aromas on the nose. It is a nice medley of fruit, floral, and oak tones that is very well balanced and inviting. On the palate this wine has a vibrant acidity that invigorates the palate immediately. There are light grain tannins that coat the palate and the finish is long and rich, climaxing with a juicy fruit and vanilla tone that lingers. Drink Now through 2016.
