Here’s the thing – you get all that good stuff with Pinot Noir, with the added bonus of longevity that extends significantly further than a bouquet. A wine for celebration, friends and food, Pinot Noir is equally adept at creating vinous memories that will last a lifetime. Roses are Red, So Is My Wine Pinot Noir is built with this purpose in mind – a celebration, a gift, a reason to smile.

Monterey County is serious about producing world-class wines, and this Pinot Noir channels their decades of experience. Despite its reputation as a viticultural curmudgeon, Pinot Noir has managed to thrive in Monterey’s well-aerated, sandy soils; producing medium-bodied, feminine-styled versions that consistently achieve flavor ripeness and generosity of fruit.
The steep canyons and fertile valleys where this wine is grown give it a concentration and depth of flavor that punches well above its weight class. This land of rolling hills, herbal chaparral, olive trees and vineyards certainly influence the flavor profile of the wines produced therein, and Roses are Red, So Is My Wine Pinot Noir is a glorious example of this beautiful region’s potential to produce wines that compete very well on a global stage.
