Lucienne "Smith Vineyard" Pinot Noir 2018 (Santa Lucia Highlands, CA)
Winery Notes: The 2018 Lucienne Smith Pinot Noir displays fragrant aromas of red currant, cherry, blueberry, and spicy toasty oak. Flavors of red cherry, black plum, and lingering impressions of spicy clove and cinnamon give this wine a backbone with an intriguing layered tannin finish.
Wine Enthusiast, 94 Points: “Lemon blossom, grapefruit rind, pastry flake and a hint of ash show on the nose of this single-vineyard expression from the Hahn family. It’s suave and broad on the palate at first, then it chisels down to pinpoint acidity, delivering flavors of apricot, lime zest and chalk before the slightly nutty finish."
