Bernardus Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir 2021
|Region||California, Central Coast, Santa Lucia Highlands|
Our 2021 Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir exhibits all the characteristics that have demonstrated the superb quality of this special viticultural region. The aromas display bright ripe cherry, plum, strawberry aroma, along with subtle hints of French oak notes. The palate is very rich and expressive of intense red fruit flavors and spice notes supported by a long, silky finish. This is a wonderful example of the widely recognized quality of this unique growing region!
Brooding aromas of berry and intense plum are cut by tar and pepper on the nose of this appellation blend. There's an opulent ripeness to the palate where spicy flavors of mace, cardamom, vanilla and clove decorate the dark, rich fruit core.
