2012 Beachcomber Monterey Pinot Noir

Flavors of red currants, black cherry and wild Italian plum are complemented by a touch of vanilla and toast that linger in the long, silky finish. Notes of rose petal and savory herbs are intensified with decanting. This elegant, balanced offering is the ultimate food wine. Try it with grilled salmon, roast duck, pork tenderloin or soft-ripened cheeses.
