Lucia (by Pisoni) 'Soberanes' Pinot Noir 2019 (Santa Lucia Highlands, CA)
Producer Notes: The result of another spectacular growing season in the Santa Lucia Highlands, the 2019 Garys’ Vineyard Pinot Noir is an exquisite offering from this legendary site. Richly hued in the glass, this vibrant, medium ruby wine sings with concentrated aromas of raspberry liqueur, black cherry, and rose petal. Adding depth and complexity with each swirl, distinct notes of sandalwood and baking spice create a constantly evolving and unmistakable bouquet. Capitalizing on the character from the alluvial soils of this gently sloped, east-facing vineyard, the vines ripened each cluster slowly and evenly, benefitting from wind-swept summer afternoons. Coating the palate like a layer of velvet, flavors of strawberry compote, kirsch, and black tea are backed by hints of toasty, spicy oak and vibrant acidity. A stunning representation of this storied varietal in its youth, this wine will continue to develop gracefully for more than a decade.
Wine Spectator, 93 Points: “A refined style, with sinewy power to the taut and pure-tasting dried cherry and berry flavors that show notes of sandstone and cedar box. Crunchy acidity lingers onto the minerally finish, with rich toasty accents. Drink now through 2026. "
