2011 Campesino Los Carneros Pinot Noir Napa Valley Papi y Chula Vineyard
Carrie Bowman of Napa Valley Wine and Cigar introduced me to the wines of Macario Montoya 3 years ago and I'm glad she suggested them. Each vintage expresses the vineyard, climate and small clusters of grapes which lead to an absolutely amazing wine. The flavor is intense yet elegant throughout. One of the best under $40 Pinot Noirs you can drink!
Intense cherry and raspberry treat the nose. Earthy eucalyptus notes with green olives and hints of cinnamon round out the aromas. Classic Carneros Pinot.
This wine is pouring beautifully with ripe juicy raspberry and fresh cranberry fruit. Light cherry notes with a hint of earth and herbs. Lovely long silky finish and juicy. Outstanding wine being produced by Campesino Cellars
Find yourself a small boutique winemaker and enjoy the journey. Hands down they produce the most memorable enjoyable juice.
