2018 Sarmento Vineyard Pinot Noir
Santa Lucia Highlands
This showcase wine is a true homage to classic Burgundian Pinot Noirs with earthy characteristics of mineral and forest floor. Rich notes of berry and clove are evident on the nose and enhanced by spicy tannins. The finish is long and plush with a slight hints of vanilla and spice.
Enjoy this wine with hearty dishes such as beef stew or spaghetti with meatballs. The clove and berry notes in this luscious wine also pair beautifully with spicy barbecue.
