Mendocino Pinot Noir 2010

California $12.00

Greetings Notable Wine-ers,

Established in 1994, Castle Rock Winery
has been producing high quality, great value
wines for nearly two decades. I am always
impressed with their selections in every
vintage I have tasted, especially in the last
three years.

Castle Rock focuses on a few key growing
regions on the west coast: Napa Valley,
Sonoma, Mendocino and Monterey counties
as well as Willamette Valley in Oregon and
Columbia Valley in Washington.

They purchase grapes from 40 growers in
all of these areas. After harvest, the wines
are made and bottled under their supervision
at various wineries equipped with state of
the art facilities.

The 2010 Pinot Noir is made entirely from
grapes grown in Mendocino County. Here
the cooler climate and terroir enable the
Pinot Noir to ripen beautifully with just the
right acidity and fruit balance. For those
who prefer a drier style of Pinot Noir, this
is for you. It shows hints of violets in the
aroma and dark cherry, raspberry flavors
that linger on the palate.

Serve Castle Rock Mendocino Pinot Noir
with roasted chicken or cornish hen,
grilled or broiled salmon fillet, and medium
to full flavored cheese.

Truly a Fine Wine for Less at $12.00.
