Lucienne Doctor's Vineyard Pinot Noir 2014


SKU 273


Our Lucienne Doctor's Vineyard Pinot Noir is one of four vineyard-designated, limited-production Pinot Noirs produced at our estate in the Santa Lucia Highlands of Monterey County. In part, our Lucienne wines owe their seductive nature to clonal selection. We planted an array of Pinot Noir clones, or slight genetic variations, in each of our vineyards. Each clone contributes a desired color, aroma, flavor, texture, or structural element to the finished wine.

Wine AdvocateAnother terrific wine from this estate is the 2014 Lucienne Pinot Noir Doctor's Vineyard. Fresh, focused and vibrant, with nicely integrated acidity giving plenty of lift to notes of black cherries, sappy herbs and spring flowers, it has fine grained tannin, excellent concentration and a great finish. It will be better in a year or two (which is a rarity in 2014) and keep through 2024.
