Located about 10 miles East of Carmel, California, the Pelio vineyard sits on the North side of the Carmel Valley, at about 1,000 feet above sea level, creating a cooler growing climate. The vineyard consists of 15 acres, of which 12 are planted in Pinot, the other 3 in Chardonnay.

This Pinot is barrel aged for 11 months. It has a rich, enticing aroma of smoke, earth, chocolate, and a faint herbal quality. The flavor is of dry cherries, pepper, and strawberries. The wine is slightly on the acid side, with a hint of licorice. It has a medium-long finish that evolves through its flavor profile with a velvety mouthfeel and just a touch of bitterness.

This wine paired quite well with grilled Irish Salmon, topped with a Kalamata Olive drizzle. It will be featured in an upcoming wine dinner featuring winemaker Peter Figge, and is available locally at Gulf Wines Merchants, located at 1836 SW 3rd Ave, in Miami. Their phone number is (305) 854-4646; other locations can be found by e-mailing jane@uuwines.com.
