Lucienne Doctor's Vineyard Pinot Noir 2018
|Region||California, Central Coast, Santa Lucia Highlands|
Beautiful aromas of blackberry and cherry accented with hints of sagebrush and clover. The wine’s vibrant acidity and smooth tannins lead to a silky structure and lingering finish.
Deep, brilliant red. Expressive red and blue fruit, potpourri and allspice aromas show excellent clarity and pick up vanilla and star anise notes as the wine opens up. Sappy and energetic on the palate, offering concentrated black raspberry, cherry cola and spicecake flavors braced by a spine of juicy acidity. The floral note comes back strong on a long, appealingly sweet finish framed by round, polished tannins.
Brisk raspberry and baked pomegranate aromas meet with tea leaf, toasty oak and turned earth on the nose of this single-vineyard expression. Smoked meat and wild cherry flavors converge on the sip, where bright floral elements lead into an acid-driven, vanilla-spiced finish.
