Formation, Pinot Noir, Arroyo Seco, Monterey, California 2018
Aromas of cherries, plums and raspberries with notes of mocha, vanilla and toasty oak. Medium-bodied, structured-yet-soft tannins, lingering bright red fruit finish.
The geologic formations of the Monterey region were formed many millions of years ago. Surrounded by mountains, what is even more influential to the wines is what you don't see: the Monterey Canyon, one of the deepest spots in the Pacific Ocean whose uprising cools the vineyards and allows the grapes to ripen more slowly and evenly.
