The 2007 Kali Hart Pinot Noir, Monterey is the entry level Pinot Noir from Robert Talbott Vineyards. Intended for early consumption, this wine has a medium ruby color and offers up aromas of cherry cola, rhubarb and a hint of Asian spice. The palate is rather lean and tart with modest light red fruits and charred French oak. Quite acidic with negligible tannins. A bit too lean to enjoy on its own, but nicely balanced as a food wine.
