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 capture 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 CCSW (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.

    Here comes one more (and final?) amazing offer from our friends at Carmel Road. These offerings are the best Pinot Noir opportunities I’ve come across all year. The pedigree of these wines is without question. This offers up a lovely aroma of juicy berries with a hint of spice and a touch of forest floor. The wine is elegant on the palate but delivers loads of flavor, complexity, and a long lingering finish. At $20 per bottle, these wines are the Pinot Noir bargain of the year. This one came along just in time for the holidays as we roll into Thanksgiving and the rest of the winter months. So if you’ll be entertaining over the next couple of months, or just enjoy opening bottles of fine Pinot Noir, I strongly encourage you to load up.

    Carmel Road has once again delivered a stunning, classic Pinot from the North Crest block of the Panorama Vineyard. Fresh and juicy, this wine shows perfectly ripe raspberries, cherries with a hint of pomegranate. Complemented by uplifting floral aromas of white blossom, hibiscus, and beach grass. The wine perfectly captures the area of Monterey in a glass, and would be the talk of the table at Thanksgiving dinner. Best of all, we are able to offer this wine for an incredible value of $20, when it sells at the winery for $55.

    This is a lot of wine for not much money. The nose starts off a bit gamy and herbal, but that pastoral whiff quickly subsides as it is overcome by delectable purity of fruit. Brambly and fleshy, the texture is delightful. A mouthful of juicy cherry and ripe cranberry with just a hint of clove and allspice washes across the palate showing impressive concentration. The finish brings just enough vanilla and orange peel to compliment the other flavors without compromising their integrity. Mix that with vibrant, mouthwatering acid, and you've got a real winner. It'll be everyone's favorite with turkey dinner, so make sure to get a few extra bottles.
