2019 San Simeon Pinot Noir, Monterey

2019 San Simeon Pinot Noir, Monterey

Rich, fruit-driven wine with ripe flavors of strawberry and raspberry. The mouth is soft and round with a lingering finish.

The Riboli Family farms estate vineyards in Monterey in order to ensure the ultimate level of grape quality. The Loma Vista and Sarmento Vineyards embody our family’s commitment to estate grown wines. Both vineyards share spectacular views of the Santa Lucia Highlands and were chosen for their well-drained, alluvial soils and cool, coastal microclimates. San Simeon Pinot Noir is a rich, fruit-driven wine with ripe flavors of strawberry and raspberry. The mouth is soft and round with a lingering finish. Aromas of bright red fruit, cinnamon, and oak spice are revealed on the fragrant nose.

 

Sustainability

Sustainability is our top priority. Our Paso Robles and Monterey vineyards are certified sustainable by CSWA. At our Paso Robles winery, solar panels provide 100% of the needed electricity, and wastewater is effectively reclaimed and recycled for additional uses.

Wine Making

San Simeon Pinot Noir comes only from the best lots that our estate vineyards have to offer. Small lots are picked and fermented individually with minimal intervention to allow the true expression of the soil and climate. The wines are matured in a unique selection of hand-crafted French barrels.

Food Pairing

The San Simeon Pinot Noir shines with all classic Pinot pairings. Some particular favorites are pork, salmon and mild cheeses.
