Dear Friends,

We have a winner for you today!  91 points. Juicy. Zesty. Full-bodied. Plush. Round and creamy. Those are just a few of the superlatives that past vintages of this Lot 923 2021 Monterey Pinot Noir have garnered. The source winery is based in Napa, and they are a powerhouse—they have access to some of the very best vineyard sources in all of California, especially in Monterey! And CH Wine Fans, the thing we’re not supposed to say (the thing our Sonoma friends don’t want to admit) is that Monterey might be California’s most “undersung wine region” for growing world-class Pinot Noir grapes—that’s a direct quote from the uber-lux magazine AFAR.

So, what’s the big secret? Shhh…it’s Monterey Bay’s “Blue Grand Canyon.” The positively frigid waters of Monterey Bay’s off-shore mile-deep canyon cause frigid winds to funnel inland at such profound intensity and speeds that trees are permanently bent southeast! But those cooling winds also make for perfect conditions to grow great Pinot grapes—they develop thicker skins to combat the winds, and the wines are fresh, fragrant, and powerful, with racy acidities, which is exactly how we’d describe Lot 923. Throw in heaping doses of juicy black raspberry and plum, a cache of herbs and baking spices, and plush textures. Sounds just like the heavy-bitting benchmark wines of the region from Chalone, Pisoni, Talbott, and Wente! Only some of their top wines run up to $75 per bottle.

Lot 923 is a fresh, fragrant, and powerful Pinot Noir with racy acidity, courtesy of grapes growing in the path of frigid winds funneling inland from the Monterey Bay off-short mile-deep Blue Grand Canyon. Juicy black raspberry and plum aromas and flavors mingle with a cache of herbs and baking spices. Impressive concentration offers a plush-palate feel making this a great solo-sipper or one to pair with dishes rich in brown baking spices. We love it with rich Indian-flavored dishes like Tikka Masala, Palak Paneer, or Roast Chicken with sauteed Shittakes and potatoes. Pizza lovers could whip up a white-sauce pizza with roasted Hen of the Woods mushrooms for an explosion of joyful flavors.
