2014 Pinot Noir "Route 152" (Pietra Santa)
Pietra Santa Estate, Pinot Noir "Route 152", Cienega Valley, California 2014100% Pinot Noir VIBRANT CHERRY & STRAWBERRY PRESERVES, BITTERSWEET VANILLA, EARTHY SPICE Finding its voice in the windswept coastal vineyards of Monterey, this small-production (just over 3,000 cases per year) Pinot outmaneuvers any that we’ve seen or tasted from California at its price in over a decade. Its brand of succulent, snappy red fruit and how it carries the wispy, well-temepred perfume of vanilla and cedar from a year in barrel bear the unmistakable hallmarks of ripe, New World Pinot Noir. For exceptional, estate-produced Pinot noir that pushes the limits, you’re on the right road: Route 152. Serving Suggestion: Soft flour tacos w/ ground beef, grilled sweet onions, & halved cherry tomatoes. Chicken pot pie.
