Lucienne Doctor's Vineyard Pinot Noir 2019
|California, Central Coast, Santa Lucia Highlands
Expressive aromas of red cherry, plum and orange zest along with hints of sage, clove and white pepper. The wine has great mid-palate structure, smooth soft tannins, flavors of red cherry, bramble berries and a touch of warm spice on a refreshing lingering finish.
The 2021 Pinot Noir Doctor's Vineyard is one of the softer wines in this range from Lucienne. It offers an exotic mix of kirsch, hard candy, dried rose petals, cedar, pipe tobacco and mint. Floral and savory accents lift the finish nicely.
Leads with sassafras and savory notes, followed by a core of mulled raspberry and plum fruit. Reveals light fruitcake and sous-bois accents on the finish. Drink now through 2026. 1,343 cases made.
Strong smoke aromas surround the black-cherry, loamy soil, crushed granite and iodine elements on the nose of this bottling. Mesquite- and oak-smoked fruit and meat flavors show powerfully on the sip, which is quite savory.
