About This Wine:
The Pinot Noir grape is notoriously persnickety in the vineyard. Sometimes it seems as if it needs to be coaxed into ripening fully. That makes the place where it’s grown — the climate, the soil and so on — so important.
In California, among the most dependable places for growing high-quality Pinot Noir is the Central Coast region, running roughly from Santa Barbara to Monterey. There, a number of cooler pockets can be found in which the variety thrives, enabling vintners to craft expressive and delicious wines.
For its 2018 vintage of Pinot Noir, 3 Muses Cellars utilized fruit from a handful of specially selected vineyards, and crafted it into a well-rounded wine that is medium-garnet in hue, brimming with bright berry fruit, and possessing an alluring smoky edge. It’s an exceptional Pinot Noir that any vintner would be proud to call their own.
