Winemakers Notes:

A beautifully pure expression of this varietal, the 2017 Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir sings with the greatest notes of each vineyard from which it was born (47% Pisoni, 29% Garys’, and 24% Soberanes). Shielded amongst a brilliant youthful ruby hue, waves of Bing cherry, violet, and sandalwood spice escape into the glass as this wine takes its first breath. On the palate, this wine stuns with the complexity and focus of one of its single vineyard siblings. The main act showcases bright notes of raspberry and strawberry cream paired with more elegant flavors of sage and baking spice, which open the curtain one last time for an encore of focused acidity and a layered, lingering finish.

94 points Jeb Dunnuck

 As to the Pinot Noirs, the 2017 Pinot Noir Santa Lucia Highlands is a gem of a wine that’s unquestionably at the same level as the single vineyard releases. Mulberries, black raspberries, spring flowers, and forest floor notes all emerge from this medium to full-bodied, elegant Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir that leads with its fruit. It will keep for 7-8 years.  (6/2019)

 This appellation blend is a compelling show of the region, starting with fresh and lively aromas of black cherry, raspberry, loamy soil and crushed slate. The earthy quality is prominent on the palate, but backed up by deep accents of boysenberry and cardamom. *Editors’ Choice* (MK)  (6/2019)
