K&L Notes

Once considered too cool for vineyards, Monterey has become the "hot" spot for sleek Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Here Carmel Road Winery crafts vibrant wines that captures the essence of this remarkable region. They've been producing some of the region's most exciting wines since 1999. Not only are the wines racy and charming, Carmel Road Winery is dedicated to the well-being of the area, being both SIP (Sustainability in Practice) and SSCW (Certified California Sustainable Winegrowing) certified. The Panorama Vineyard, in Arroyo Seco is comprised of high density planting. This vine spacing practice mirrors some of the top producers in Burgundy. Close spacing forces vines to compete for water and nutrients, resulting in wines with heightened aromatics, greater concentration and more complexity. The South Crest delivers precisely the kind of profile we look for in a classic, cool-climate Pinot. Bright cherry fruit, a clean delivery, and an engaging complexity, all work to excellent effect. Crafted according to sustainable practices, it displays unparalleled purity and focus.

    Following on the heels of our recent Carmel Road offer; which sold out in one day; comes our next insane opportunity. Once again, we were able to secure the entire remaining stock from the winery and offer it at a ridiculously low price. The winery was selling this wine for $55, but we're offering it for $19.99! The Panorama vineyard, within the Arroyo Seco AVA, is adjacent to the more famous Santa Lucia Highlands AVA and is considered by many to be the top vineyard in the area. This is Pinot Noir country. The vineyard is divided into three distinct plots; First Row, North Crest, and South Crest. While all sites produce textbook Pinot Noir, the South Crest is the strongest offering from the 2014 vintage. These Carmel Road offerings are the best Pinot Noir opportunities I’ve been able to secure this year. To repeat; the 2015 sold out in one day. It won't surprise me if history repeats.
