A former Wine of the Month, the Irony Pinot Noir 2012 took home the Platinum Medal and 95 Points at the 2014 Critics Challenge International Wine Competition in San Diego!

Master of Wine Mary Ewing-Mulligan and lead Wine Enthusiast critic W. Blake Gray praised the Irony for its "refined elegance." It's no surprise as Monterey is known for world class Pinot Noir, as their climate is moderated by the cooling influences of the Pacific Ocean. This combination of temperature and geography lengthens the growing season and creates a full-bodied red with depth and complexity. Bursting with ripe red fruit notes, earthy undertones and a velvety finish, the Irony Pinot Noir 2012 is an outstanding value.

Tasting notes
Irony Pinot Noir opens with aromas of red cherry, strawberry and undertones of clove and sage. Rhubarb flavors are layered with accents of red cherry, licorice and berry jam. Firm tannins and crisp acidity deliver a lovely balanced, medium-bodied wine with a smooth finish.

Wine maker notes
Drawing on three generations of family winemaking and long-established grower relationships, Irony crafts wines that exemplify each region, not at its most extreme, but at its most honest and expressive. The majority of the fruit for the 2012 Irony Pinot Noir came from two Monterey viticultural areas. Chualar Vineyard, on the eastern side of the Salinas Valley, is made up of decomposed granite and brings bright, lifted red cherry aromas to the final blend. Arroyo Seco, at the base of the Santa Lucia mountain range, makes up the remainder, and contributes earthy, nutmeg spice and blackberry fruit to this Pinot Noir.
