Winery Notes:

Entirely estate-farmed and sourced from these premier vineyard sites within the Santa Lucia Highlands, the 2021 Lucia Estate Cuvée of Pinot Noir represents our continued dedication to excellence in farming and winemaking. A sumptuous blend of 60% Pisoni Vineyard, 23% Garys’ Vineyard, and 17% Soberanes Vineyard, this wine offers up enticing aromas of strawberry compote, juicy cranberry, sandalwood, and black tea leaves, all contained within the embrace of its deep ruby hue. Carefully monitored fermentation temperatures and methodical extraction techniques have produced a wine of remarkable depth, concentration, and complexity. Layers of black cherry, Mission fig, spiced plum, and berry crumble provide a stepping stone for more subtle hints of fresh sage, clove, and vanilla bean to make their voices heard. A true snapshot of these wind-swept vines, this Pinot Noir finishes with vibrant acidity and a distinct, yet noticeably approachable structure. Don’t be surprised to see this wine continuing to amaze for years to come.

As with the appellation Chardonnay, I loved the 2019 Pinot Noir Santa Lucia Highlands, This beauty offers everything you could want from a Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir. Loads of framboise, ripe strawberries, leafy herbs, spring flowers, and baking spices all make an appearance on the nose, and it's a forward, medium to full-bodied, textured effort ideal for drinking over the coming 3-5 years.

Deep, shimmering magenta. An expressive bouquet evokes black raspberry, cherry-cola, candied flowers, oak spices and smoky minerals. Sweet, seamless and expansive on the palate, showing very good depth and energy to its sappy red and dark berry, mocha and spicecake flavors. Closes smooth, seamless and quite long, with harmonious tannins sneaking in late. This wine is made from fruit from three different estate vineyards: 52% Pisoni, 30% Soberanes and 18% Garys'; 20% whole clusters and 40% new French oak.

Intense aromas of melted black-cherry sorbet drizzled in caramel sauce make for a very fruity but lovable nose. The palate boasts an assertive boysenberry character, with tons of unapologetically ripe fruit that's offset by mint and cocoa flavors. Drink now.

Taut, with well-framed dried dark cherry and berry flavors that show plenty of forest floor accents, followed by hints of slate and black pepper on the loamy finish. Drink now through 2023. 1,560 cases made.
