About This Wine:
Fruit flavors, structure and spice all exhibit themselves so that no single element is deemed more important than another. The grapes are grown, picked on flavor and barrel aged with this concept in mind.
Typical Monterey Pinot Noir is made from a blend of clonal selections that add interest and complexity to the finished wine. Each winemaker follows their instinct and personal preferences to craft a distinctive flavor profile and style for their label that satisfies their true belief in how Pinot Noir should be enjoyed and what the grapes and harvest year have offered.
Monterey Pinot Noir is more fruit forward than a Burgundian version due to the longer growing season in California. In 2018, that growing season was perfect both in length and weather, enabling the vintner at Quail Hollow to craft a gorgeous wine that’s beautifully balanced and delicious.
