The Willowbrook Cellars 2013 Pinot Noir was produced from the Monterey County AVA, a region gaining well-deserved recognition for its Pinot Noirs, partly in thanks to its close proximity to Monterey Bay. The Bay keeps daytime temperatures low which helps provide a relatively long, even growing season - the ideal setting for Pinot Noir.
A great example of Monterey County Pinot Noir, this wine opens with compelling aromas of mushrooms, pine needles and candied cherries. The palate offers flavors of baked plum, black licorice and layers of freshly-picked red berry fruits that lead into a nuanced but well-structured finish.
