Wine AdvocateFrom one of the warmest sites in the Santa Lucia Highlands and granite soils, the 175-case 2014 Pinot Noir Pisoni Vineyard was mostly destemmed (10% whole clusters) and spent 15 months in 27% new French oak. It offers textbook Pinot Noir notes of kirsch, blackberries, wild herbs and cedary spice in a full-bodied, concentrated, impeccably structured and balanced profile. My notes finished with "serious wine," and while it certainly offers pleasure today, it will be even better with short term cellaring, and I suspect it will still be drinking nicely in 2028.

Wine SpectatorPlump and generous, with lively, delicate, earth- and gravel-laced plum and black cherry flavors, gaining a spicy quality and firming with fine-grained tannins on the aftertaste. Drink now. 175 cases made.
