Our winemaking team seeks to capture the vibrant, bright flavor profile of Monterey - where the triumvirate of fog, wind and sun forge distinctive wines with vivid complexity, superb acidity and a pronounced minerality that have become the hallmark of Carmel Road wines. With this wine, Carmel Road’s Pinot Noir expertise meets the vivacious, free spirited charm of winemaking partner Drew Barrymore. Drew and winemaker Kris Kato set out to craft this wine, with the goal of offering a beautiful Pinot Noir featuring red fruit and warm spice notes, perfect for sharing with friends and family.
REGION: Monterey Inland from Monterey’s rugged coastline, yet still directly in the path of the ocean’s relentless influences, Carmel Road’s vineyards can be found nestled on the foothills of the Santa Lucia Mountains. No mountains hinder the flow of air from the Monterey Bay, allowing fog and chilly, moisture-laden winds to sweep over our vineyards daily, making this one of the coldest wine regions in California.
