Wine of the Day: Fog’s Reach Pinot Noir

From Monterey County’s Arroyo Seco AVA, J Lohr Vineyards & Wines crafts their charming100% sustainably grown Pinot Noir, Fog’s Reach Pinot Noir ($35). With well-draining, sandy loam and gravel-filled soils the Fog’s Reach vineyard require delicate vines to dig deep into the soil to find nutrients, lending structure and complexity to the resulting wine. Minimal barrel aging (8 months in partially new French oak) keeps the wine fresh and bright, delivering an overall palate filled with red fruits (raspberry, cranberry, wild strawberry, bing cherry) mingling seamlessly with woody dried sage, nutmeg, and cardamom, pairing with anything from seafood stew to hard cheeses and charcuterie to Indian cuisine. #Cheers
