Winery Notes:

Garys’ Vineyard is a highly acclaimed and storied site owned by two Garys; Franscioni and Pisoni. It was planted in the mid ‘90’s to Pisoni clones in Santa Lucia Highlands sandy loam soil. With my first vintage of Garys’ in 1999, I could sense its quality and knew this vineyard could becomeone of the great sites in California.

2018 Garys’ exhibits medium red color in the glass with a bright purple hue. Black fruit with toasty vanilla aromas leads into black cherry, ripe strawberry and plum on the palate. Chewy fruit and candied orange rind sneak in mid palate.

The 2018 Pinot Noir Garys' is bright and focused, with terrific energy driving the sweet red berry and floral notes. White pepper, mint, blood orange and a kiss of new French oak (40%) add layers of nuance and dimension. The 2018 finishes with a real sense of saline-infused briskness that is hugely appealing. This is another stellar wine in Sean Capiaux's range.
