Highly Scored California Pinot Noir

CRŪ Vineyards is a family owned winery that sources fruit from some of the finest vineyards on the Central Coast of California. With a focus on Burgundian and Rhone varietals such as Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Syrah – which are best suited to this region, the winery crafts wines for quality everyday drinking.

The 2016 CRŪ Vineyard Montage Pinot Noir was sourced primarily from the marine-influenced Sarmento Vineyard in the Santa Lucia Highlands. Multiple clones were used in the production of this Pinot Noir including 667, 115 and Pommard 5. By utilizing various clones from multiple elevations, the winemaker creates depth, complexity in aroma and balance to the final blend.

The final blend was aged in 15% new French Oak barrels with medium+ toast levels for 9 months. This aging process creates a nose of freshly picked cherries, blackberries, black pepper and cocoa. The complexity of multiple clones and elevations shows flavors of cherry, pomegranate, olive, spice, cocoa and infused tea that is nicely balanced with hints of tasted oak. This showcase wine is a true homage to classic Burgundian Pinot Noirs
