This Pinot Noir made by Kenny Likitprakong is one of our perennial bestsellers since Kenny introduced it five years ago. The blend shifts every vintage, but grapes are always from various Monterey vineyards, at least for the most part. For this 2009, 5% fruit from Potter Valley was added. The wine was aged in neutral oak barrel, as the intent is to emphasize the lively fruity freshness of the wine. This is balanced and simply luscious.
Nose and Palate: rock’n smokiness comes out, nice length on palette, lots of strawberry and cherry flavors.
