Pinot Noir 2014, Re­serve, Carneros, Napa Val­ley, Robert Mon­davi, Cal­i­for­nia red, $60.50, SAQ # 10219840.

Montreal Gazette - - WEEKEND LIFE -

A tighter, more aus­tere vi­sion of Cal­i­for­nia pinot noir, and one that works. Typ­i­cal of the cooler grow­ing area, the fruit is red and fresh — al­most juicy, at least un­til the tan­nins kick in. The wood is there, but it’s spicy. This will age nicely. Good to see such fi­nesse and re­straint from a Cali Pinot.

Resid­ual sugar: 3.1 g/L. Grape va­ri­ety: pinot noir. Serve at: 16 C.

Drink now-2024. Food pair­ing ideas: apéri­tif, filet mignon.
