Review: 2013 Starmont Chardonnay and Pinot Noir

Starmont-2013-Carneros-PinotTwo new releases from our friends at Starmont, Merryvale’s sister winery and an all-around great value label.

2013 Starmont Chardonnay Carneros – A mere $23 will get you this masterfully made Chardonnay, which balances buttery oak with fresh pears and a dusting of cinnamon sugar. A touch of acid on the finish brightens things up. A- / $23

2013 Starmont Pinot Noir Carneros – Light body, with simple fruit elements all up front — cherries and a touch of strawberry — with backing notes of brewed tea, some baking spice, and a gentle finish. A- / $27
