Description

Inland from Monterey’s rugged coastline, yet still directly in the path of the ocean’s relentless influence, Carmel Road Winery creates vibrant Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon that captures the essence of this remarkable region and California's coastal vineyards.
 
We were drawn to the area two decades ago, attracted by the combination of cool, foggy nights and warm, sunny, days that ripen fruit to perfection. Once thought too cool for vineyards, Monterey is now considered one of the premiere growing regions in California. Our sustainably farmed vineyards stretch across windswept benchlands, where the maritime climate and well-drained, alluvial gravel soils produce highly expressive wines. The first vintage of Carmel Road wines was released in 1999.
 
There’s a back road that stretches from the town of Carmel by the Sea, traversing the Arroyo Seco and through scenic gaps in the Santa Lucia hills, connecting the inland growing region to the ocean. This winding trail was the inspiration for our name, our own Carmel Road.

Wine tasting notes

Our 2017 Monterey Pinot Noir has bright cherry aromas that are layered with notes of wild strawberries and black tea. On the mouth, you get juicy black cherry flavors and notes of cola with hints of vanilla, toasted oak and well balanced tannins. A silky texture leads to a long finish

Vinification notes

The wines are vinified using classic Burgundian techniques, including cold soaking the grapes before crush, open-top fermenting in both stainless steel vats and small French oak barrels, and the use of cultured as well as wild yeasts. The wines then are aged primarily in French oak barrels of varying toast levels.
