Apex Pinot Noir
The Franscioni family has been farming in the Salinas Valley since 1886. Ray Franscioni’s Apex Vineyard is in the heart of the southeast-facing terraces of the Santa Lucia Mountain range overlooking the Salinas River Valley. The vineyards, at an elevation of 1,250 feet, receive morning sun exposure before being influenced by the daily fog and ocean breezes 28 miles from Monterey Bay.
Cranberry in color with a pink rose rim. Aromas of muddled raspberry, cocoa powder, peanut shell, mountain sage, matchbox and white pepper. Flavors of crushed granite, cured meats, soy sauce, dried rose petals and crushed leaves. This wine has a savory and umptious mouthfeel.
