Earthy tobacco with oodles of cherry and really fruity strawberries. She’s an easy drinker for sure. Soft on the palate with gentle spices. The finish is long and elegant. Great value at BevMo! Don’t miss it.

Winemaker Notes: “Fragrant heirloom roses, ripe black cherries and a touch of tobacco invite the senses into our approachable and enjoyable Chalone Vineyard Monterey County Pinot Noir. The red fruit brightens across the palate, picking up raspberry and spice. Soft and silky through the middle, the wine crescendos on the finish, leaving a vibrant, juicy memory in the mouth—an excellent match to wild mushroom flatbread drizzled with a touch of truffle oil.”
