Estate Pinot Noir Monterey by Craftwork Wines 2013
An elegant and stylish wine, with aromas of strawberries and vivid red fruit flavors balanced with subtle spice and a delicate mineral note. The silky texture leads into a long, layered finish. The Craftwork Pinot Noir is a graceful and balanced offering that is the ultimate food wine. It pairs beautifully with grilled salmon, roast duck, pork tenderloin or soft-ripened cheeses.

Well structured and has a light touch with a nice finish. Not complex or spicy; the fruit is also less pronounced than other California pinot noirs. Might benefit from cellaring for a few years. (Posted on 3/21/2016)
