Tasting Notes

Juicy aromas of intense red cherry, raspberry jam, pomegranate, and sassafras. A perky and fresh palate is from the bountiful acidity provided by this wine region so near the Pacific, but the fruit is perfectly ripe, with candied berries, soft oak spice, and a touch of ocean spray.


Inland from Monterey’s rugged coastline, yet still directly in the path of the ocean’s relentless influence, Carmel Road Winery creates vibrant Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Riesling that captures the essence of this remarkable region. The region has the combination of cool, foggy nights and warm, sunny, days that ripen fruit to perfection. Once thought too cool for vineyards, Monterey is now considered one of the premiere growing regions in California. The sustainably farmed vineyards stretch across windswept benchlands, where the maritime climate and well-drained, alluvial gravel soils produce highly expressive wines. The first vintage of Carmel Road wines was released in 1999.T here’s a back road that stretches from the town of Carmel by the Sea, traversing the Arroyo Seco and through scenic gaps in the Santa Lucia hills, connecting the inland growing region with to the ocean. This winding trail was the inspiration for the name, Carmel Road.
