The vineyards of Monterey County extend from the foggier northern parts of the Bay southward to the warmer and sunnier reaches of the Salinas Valley. Here waters that rush down from the Santa Lucia Mountains irrigate this dry but fertile landscape.
Aromas of raspberries and ripe cherries with a touch of smoke and spice. Take a sip and you'll encounter a crowd-pleasing red with enough finesse to please the Pinot purist. Go ahead and pour yourself a glass with pomegranate glazed grilled salmon or a classic coq au vin.

I keep reordering this wine because it's so enjoyable and the price makes it a bargain. This is a smooth, light touch that complements many dishes; not a complex wine, but an elegant and enjoyable red that won't overwhelm a meal. It doesn't need a lot of breathing to get the full flavor. It's ready to drink when the cork is pulled. I like it at slightly warmer than room temperature.
