About This Wine:
But there is one common trait that all vintners seek in every wine they make: balance. And if there is one defining characteristic of Pinot Noir from Monterey County, California, it is balance.
Fruit flavors, spice notes and structure all exhibit themselves so that no single element is more important than another. The grapes are grown and harvested, and the finished wines are barrel aged with this concept in mind. Each winemaker follows his or her instincts and personal preferences to craft a distinctive flavor profile and style that satisfies their vision of how Pinot Noir should be enjoyed based on what the grapes and vintage have offered.
In 2018, the Monterey growing season enabled the Sparrow Creek vintner to craft a Pinot Noir that is sophisticated, rich and possessing nice length. It’s a perfectly balanced wine that’s a pure pleasure to drink.
