2020 Starmont Pinot Noir
In our continued quest to deliver impressive quality at a reasonable price, we have expanded our sourcing for Starmont Pinot Noir. For the 2020, the blend comes from three different counties (Monterey 47%, Santa Barbara 46% and Napa 7%).
Our goal for Starmont Pinot Noir is varietal typicity and balance, with just the right amount of restraint to achieve a fresh, elegant example of Pinot Noir from California’s top cool climate winegrowing regions. The 2020 brings through notes of black plum and cherry buffeted with earthy notes of bramble and forest floor with an impression of graham cracker on the nose. A fresh entry on the palate gives way to an unctuous mid-palate that finishes with bright acidity.
