2009 Monticello Vineyards Estate Grown Pinot Noir - Magnum
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.
