Our winemaker hand-picks prestigious, cool climate vineyards from throughout Monterey to craft this fruit forward wine. The Monterey vineyards truly shine through with notes of blackberry and bright cherry that lead into rich flavors of dark chocolate, pepper spice and plum. The lovely balance of fruit and savory tones lead to a long, mouthwatering finish.
We recommend enhancing the lovely fruit notes in this wine by pairing it with pork loin in cherry sauce. Or, if you are looking for an easy and delicious weeknight idea, try pairing with a BLT with fresh heirloom tomatoes.
