Garnet Monterey County Pinot Noir 2014
The 2014 Garnet fulfills the promise that the perfect 2013 growing season made. The aroma of this wine shows amazing depth as it opens up with blackberry and macerated cherry notes followed up by layers of clove, vanilla and perhaps a little duck fat. An earthy smokiness is offset nicely by the richness of fruit on the palate and juicy mouthfeel. Undertones of toasted oak add to the richness of the long and delicious finish. Pairings: Pinot Noir and duck are a classic French-inspired food and wine pairing but I like to hue a little closer to my own experience growing up near Santa Barbara on "California's Riviera." My family used to raise lamb and that, combined with a natural abundance of citrus and herbs in our garden, meant that roast and grilled lamb was a staple on the table. My mother and grandmother taught me to use rosemary, garlic and lemon to highlight the natural earthiness of butterflied leg of lamb,and now I grill it for my friends and family, using my wines to make it my own.
