Roar Garys' Vineyard Pinot Noir 2018
|Region||California, Central Coast, Santa Lucia Highlands|
Combines classic leather, dark fruit and earth with cherry cream, cola, and sage-like chaparral. The herb and leather elements bring balance to a palate full of dense berry and jam. Toasty oak notes extend through the finish, and as it opens up, this wine continues to reward the palate with a seamless, complex expression of Garys' Vineyard and the cooler end of the Santa Lucia Highlands.
Both deeper and darker than the Rosella’s Vineyard, the 2017 Pinot Noir Garys’ Vineyard offers more blackberry, toasted spice, dried earth, and some garrigue-like notes, with just a hint of background oak. It too is medium-bodied, elegant, and seamless on the palate, with beautiful balance.
