Fleur de California Monterey Pinot Noir 2013
|Region||California, Central Coast, Monterey|
|Brand||Fleur de California|
Similar to what we experience in the Carneros, the Fleur Monterey Pinot benefits from a cool coastal climate where fog and wind moderate the summertime temperatures and allow the fruit to ripen at at leisurely pace. The prolonged growing season allows the fruit's sugar content and acidity to be more naturally aligned. Keeping the sugars and acids in line results in wines that exhibit the brightest fruit aromatics. In the mouth, flavors of freshly picked raspberries and strawberries explode across the palate with subtle hints of peppery spice and tea. The mouthfeel is supple, rich, and elegant.
