Lucia "Garys' Vineyard" Pinot Noir 2017 (Santa Lucia Highlands, CA)
Wine Enthusiast 97 Points" Rich, clean and powerfully mineral-driven on the nose, this single-vineyard expression shows black cherry, tangy raspberry, crushed slated and damp gravel on the nose. There is tremendous depth of flavor to the intensely elegant palate, where strong but perfectly ripe dark fruits are balanced by tightly woven tannins, fresh acidity and more rock and soil flavors."
Jeb Dunnuck 94 Points: “Completely de-stemmed, the 2017 Pinot Noir Garys’ Vineyard has a beautiful fruit-forward character as well as notes of bright cherries, raspberries, flowers, and vanilla bean. It’s another medium to full-bodied, seamless wine in the lineup that has outstanding balance as well as length."
Wine Spectator 92 Points: “Rich and ripe, featuring concentrated dark plum, kirsch and mocha cream flavors, supported by medium-grained tannins and zesty acidity. Mexican chocolate and Asian spice notes flood the toasty finish."
