Monterey winemaker Dan Morgan Lee is known for his complex Pinot Noirs; this red blend shows his talent for Rhône varieties.
What You Need To Know
The name of this red plays on “Côtes du Rhône”, the appellation in France’s southern Rhône Valley that’s home to the world’s best-known blends of the Grenache and Syrah grapes. In California’s coastal Monterey district, two hours south of San Francisco, these grape varieties yield fresher, lighter reds, a quality highlighted in the cool 2011 vintage. It’s a style that plays well to Dan Lee’s strengths. Lee founded his small label with his wife in 1982 and became known for elegant Pinot Noirs from Monterey’s chilly Santa Lucia Highlands. He displays a similar finesse in the 2011 Cotes du Crow’s blend, which expertly balances spicy Syrah and plump Grenache and offers a judicious hint of oak.
