This delightful Pinot Noir is made by the Masters family in California. Pinot Noir is a delicate grape variety that requires optimum growing conditions so the Masters' are careful to source fruit from the best vineyards.  60% comes from the Clarksburg region where the clay and loam soils coupled with the cool weather of the Sacramento Delta balances the acidity and the fruit. 40% is from Monterey with its sunshine, Pacific winds and Santa Lucia Mountain influence.  Look for violets, red berries, cherries and vanilla. Aged 12 months in French oak, pair with salmon, chicken, sushi rolls, cheeses and more...

Wine EnthusiastThis wine might be the best value available in California Pinot Noir. It has great varietal character in the aroma and follows through with tempting spice, red fruit and savory nuances on the palate. Black tea, red cherry and clove waft from the glass while cherry and cranberry spread across the palate, braced by moderate tannins and fresh acidity. It's a beautifully balanced medium-bodied wine.
