K&L Notes

Winery notes: Inland from Monterey’s rugged coastline, yet still directly in the path of the ocean’s relentless influence, Carmel Road Winery creates vibrant Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Riesling that captures the essence of this remarkable region. We were drawn to the area two decades ago, attracted by the combination of cool, foggy nights and warm, sunny, days that ripen fruit to perfection. Once thought too cool for vineyards, Monterey is now considered one of the premiere growing regions in California. Our sustainably farmed vineyards stretch across windswept benchlands, where the maritime climate and well-drained, alluvial gravel soils produce highly expressive wines. The first vintage of Carmel Road wines was released in 1999. There’s a back road that stretches from the town of Carmel by the Sea, traversing the Arroyo Seco and through scenic gaps in the Santa Lucia hills, connecting the inland growing region with to the ocean. This winding trail was the inspiration for our name, our own Carmel Road.

    Had enough of the stunning value that is our Carmel Road pinot noir? I know I haven't, and now they are back again with this awesome SLH pinot. Elegantly crafted with flavors of baking spice, dark berry, and bing cherry flavors, this is an outstanding Pinot Noir at the 20 dollar price point. Perfect for bbq-ing, or just evening drinking. The 2016 SLH is a true crowd pleaser that may deserve a case space in your cellar for every day drinking.

    Carmel Road continues to be a standout producer from the Monterey area, consistently encapsulating the cool, foggy, coastal influences the region is known for in their wines. This selection comes from their vineyard based at the foothills of the Santa Lucia Mountains, drawing in the earthy structured minerality and warm sunny exposure the foothills can provide, all while maintaining its bright freshness from the fog kissed mornings. Dark berry fruits and zippy cranberries first jump out in the glass, with layers of warm earthiness, nutmeg, and vanilla drawing you in further. Carmel Road has become a staple in my home- it makes a great impression when entertaining friends, but is also a go to for curling up on the couch with my latest tv show.

    Following a string of successes with Carmel Road winery, we're now able to offer you their 2016 Santa Lucia Highlands bottling. For my taste, this may be the best wine I've tried from them. It's all about the terroir and the Santa Lucia Highlands are about as good as it gets along California central coast. Pisoni, Roar, Lucia, Kosta-Browne, Siduri, and more all source grapes from here. But none of those wines can be had for anywhere near this price. This wine is absolutely gorgeous with captivating aromatics and succulent fruit on the palate. It's creamy and silky and slides across your tongue with a minutes long finish. I'm not sure how we keep getting these amazing deals from Carmel Road but I'll count our blessings while we do. Buy up, buy now. Every offer of Carmel Road Pinot Noir has sold out.
