Food Pairing Notes
Enjoy this beautifully balanced Pinot Noir with herb-roasted pork tenderloin, grilled plank salmon, and baked ham with savory scalloped potatoes.
The 2018 Pinot Noir greets the nose with warm aromas of ripe cherry, plum, sage and cinnamon. The palate exhibits pure elegance, with juicy, jammy flavors of strawberry, cranberry, cedar and savory spice. Velvety fruit textures unfold into a beautifully poised finish.
Margarita Vineyard stands alone as the southernmost vineyard in the Paso Robles region, nestled into the rugged Santa Lucia Mountain range just 14 miles from the Pacific Ocean. Block 33 is tucked right against the mountain peaks, in the path of what is known as the Trout Creek Drainage—a natural channel carved into the mountain flanks by eons of ero- sion. As coastal fog rolls inland from Morro Bay and begins to spill over the peaks, it first rolls down this channel and right through block 33, making it the coldest spot in the vine- yard. The result is a rarity: a varietally true and truly coastal Pinot Noir from Paso Robles.
