2014 Pinot Noir (Paraiso)
Paraiso Family Vineyards, Pinot Noir, Santa Lucia Highlands, Monterey, CA 2014DEEP & SATISFYING, RICH AND FRUIT-FILLED The Smith family has maintained their course in central California producing very California style wines for two generations. They are largely responsible for the Monterey region's rise to prominence and started out as grape farmers for many famous producers. This Pinot is unctuous and mouth-filling, with oak and rich cherry/raspberry fruit. It strikes a beautiful balance of lush fruit and oak without going over the top. It ain't heavy, it's my Pinoooot. Serving Suggestion: Tenderloin wrapped with smoky bacon; duck breast roasted with sun-dried cherries and mushrooms.
