Red Wine by Sandhi from Central Coast, California. Nowhere is the opulence of the 2014 vintage more notable than at Mt. Carmel. This auspicious south-facing vineyard sits mid-slope, below Rita’s Crown and above Sea Smoke. Farmed organically by famed viticulturist Ruben Solorzano, the fruit from Mt. Carmel is always arrives at the winery in pristine condition. The 2014 Mt. Carmel Pinot Noir is richly perfumed with black cherry, strawberry compote, and a hint of sandalwood. Sandhi’s most structured wine of the vintage, its firm tannins linger, making this the optimal pairing for hearty fare.
