Beautiful clean refreshing cherry. Slight pepper and spice on a nice medium finish
|Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
A great value-priced Monterey Pinot Noir that's easy going and flavourful, with good structure making it ideal to pair with lamb lollipops with cherry compote. Enjoy 2017-2019. Tasted January 2017. 90 points. Matt Steeves - www.mattswinepicks.com
|Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
A nice [full-bodied] Pinot Noir from California cool climate country- Monterrey. Key aromas and flavours show pronounced aromas of ripe (cooked) raspberry, stewed plum, mild lavender, and spice. The palate is bold and flavourful for a pinot with moderate acidity, medium+ tannins, a satiny texture and a long tangy berry finish. Tasted Jan 17 - @sommsosa | besoketastings.ca

From Monterey, California, this Pinot Noir shows ripe cherry, earth, subtle dried herbs and cola on nose and palate.

It's September 30th. I'm sitting outside. I'm not ready to give up summer. I've got a sweater on to keep the chill off. And I'm sipping this wine. I'm squeezing in my last BBQ of the season with BBQed salmon, zucchini from the garden and creamy, comforting risotto. It's too late for white wine, but it's too early for the full bodied reds.
For the record, I don't normally like pinot noir. But this wine is smooth, ripe fruits, light-to-medium bodied. Paired really well with my dessert of Lindt Blackcurrant Dark Chocolate.

Pale ruby. Aroma of cherry cola, grass clippings, and gentle white pepper. Tart acidity, light body, underripe red berries, green stem, with shorts finish. Score 87. (S.Segard, Reviewed Jan. 15, 2017)
|Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:|
Aromas are delicate and include strawberry, cherry, forest floor, warm earth. Lots of strawberry and cherry on the palate. Medium bodied, acidity is not quite as high as expected, but still somewhat balanced. Lots of fruit on the finish. Enjoy with pork.
|Pamela Chiles rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:|
Pleasant nose of roasted beet, tart cherry and smokey notes leads to earthy, red berry and charcoal on the palate. Would be great with summer bbq fare - grilled chicken or salmon.
|Cora Beaulieu rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:|
Light-medium ruby colour. Barely noticeable aromas with this wine. Subtle but positive cherry, red berry notes with slight herbaceous/woodsy and vanilla notes present. Medium weight not very grippy. Soft and mellow flavours of cherries and berries. This is a decent wine.
|Emilie Ryan rated this wine as 84/100 with the following review:|
A good Pinot Noir with an interesting nose…
Presentation: An interesting, engaging label with a touch of landscape art
Appearance: Pale garnet
Nose: A challenging and engaging nose of grass, herbs, dandelions, blueberries
Taste: Dry, low-medium tannins, high acidity, light bodied, with notes of spices, red fruit (raspberries, cherries), blueberries, mushrooms, and green pepper
Finish: medium spicy finish
Overall impression: A light, fruity noir with green and earthy undertones. Would pair well with vegetarian dishes
|Melanie Aubert rated this wine as 83/100 with the following review:|
This wine is low on the fruit flavours and high on the earthy, minerally, forest floor notes. Could be a good match for food like lamb or veal, which share similar flavour characteristics.
|Produced by Fetzer, Lovely cherry berry ripeness on the nose yet perfectly balanced with racy acidity on the palate. Monterey makes spectacular Pinot Noir at great prices, like this one. Pair with pasta primavera. Finishes with exotic notes of wild violets and hickory smoke. The Pinot Noir grapes for this silky Californian red wine grow in vineyards that benefit from the tempering influence of the Pacific Ocean. The vines are planted in ancient alluvial soils that were deposited by rivers and floods - a perfect combination for the fussy Pinot Noir grape and a great example of a cool-climate Pinot Noir from Monterey. Jekel vineyards were established in 1972 and started producing wines in 1978. - Community Wine Reviews|
