This elegant Pinot Noir is a special treat, an impressive version of the best from Monterey’s Santa Lucia Highlands. This refined and complex Pinot offers rich and tangy flavors of black cherries and plums, beautifully balanced with notes of minerals and spice. It’s quite delicious now but it will reward those with the patience to cellar it five years or longer. Should you choose drinking it now, pair it with equally rich foods like filet mignon, rack of lamb, or grilled, peppered ahi steaks. Available in local restaurants or online at siduri.com, it’s $48 retail.
