Roar Garys' Vineyard Pinot Noir 2014
|Appellation||Santa Lucia Highlands|
Wine EnthusiastJaw-dropping on all fronts, this wine by the pioneering Franscioni family approaches regional perfection. Black plum fruit meets with dried violet and lavender on the extremely well-integrated nose, while a mineral tension frames the palate. Flavors of black plum and blackberry jam are cut by rocky earth and wild mint, and the acidity is vibrant but not overpowering.
Wine SpectatorFull-bodied, offering rich, supple fruit balanced by potent, tea-stained tannins, making this an engaging tug-of-war, with the fruit pulling through. Drink now through 2021. 590 cases made.
