The vineyards of Monterey extend from the foggier northern parts of the bay southward to the warmer and sunnier reaches of the Salinas Valley. The waters that rush down from the Santa Lucia Mountains irrigate this dry but fertile landscape known as "America's Salad Bowl". It just so happens you can score some pretty amazing Pinot Noir to go with your freshly picked strawberries.
Beaming aromas of red raspberries and black cherries with a touch of cinnamon and clove. Take a sip and you'll encounter a crowd-pleasing red with enough finesse to please the Pinot purist. Go ahead and pour yourself a glass with cherry-glazed salmon, or a classic coq au vin.
