Tasting Notes For Diora La Petite Grace Pinot Noir 2019
The 2019 Monterey harvest produced rich wines of excellent quality. The growing season started out cool, but mild spring weather brought good bloom. Warm sunny days and cool nights throughout the summer allowed the grapes to gradually ripen. An unexpected heatwave in early September rapidly increased sugar production in some varieties, but temperatures dropped back to normal right before harvest. Overall, the 2019 Monterey growing season produced very intense and concentrated red wines.
Dark ruby in the glass, aromas of blackberries and roasted almonds mingle with nuances of toasted marshmallows and brown sugar. Soft and velvety, robust with a voluptuous and full-bodied mouthfeel, the palate unfolds with luxurious layers of intense red cherry, and a delicate hint of blueberry (imparted by the Malbec). A long, lingering finish instills a lasting impression of rich, concentrated flavors, vanilla bean and toasted oak.
