2005 Pinot Noir Monterey

(not eligible for discounts)

We began the Praxis line of wines in 2000 with a Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir and have been searching for specific clones grown in Monterey ever since.  With the 2005 Praxis Pinot Noir, Bill finally has those clones (667 and 777) from the appellation he wanted.  The wine is elegant and balanced with aromas of bing cherry, violets, leather and coffee.
