The Manzoni Home Vineyard, in the “Heart of the Highlands,” is an ideal spot to grow world-class Pinot Noir. Here, the cool region is heavily influenced by the winds off nearby Monterey Bay, promoting intensely concentrated fruit with fresh acidity and ripe flavors. The 2013 Home Vineyard Pinot Noir offers aromas of dark cherries, blackberry, cassis and spicy oak. On the palate, this wine has a velvety richness and fine ripe tannins that support the intense flavors of red plums, berry compote, vanilla, and toasty oak. An opulent, larger framed Pinot Noir.
