Lucia 07 Pinot Noir
Not Rated, Be the First! |
A true California wine family, the Pisoni legacy began back in 1979 when Eddie and Jane Pisoni purchased the land that is now Pisoni vineyards. Their son Gary and his children, Mark and Jeff, have carried on, farming the famed vineyards in the Santa Lucia Highlands and venturing into winemaking. Lucia launched in 2000 as an outlet for small bottlings that represent the region. This wine comes from Garys' Vineyard, a partnership between Gary Pisoni and Gary Franscioni, planted to Pinot Noir and Syrah in 1997. The SLH Pinot Noir is like the aromatic equivalent of 4th of July fireworks, with aromas of strawberries, pomegranates and bing cherries bursting in air. All of that continues onto the palate for an explosive, richly frame wine-drinking experiment, spiked with herbs and lingering, like smoke trails in the sky, on the finish. According to Wine Spectator: "Intense, firm and savory, this full-bodied version offers a mix of dried berry, currant, sage and mineral flavors framed by chewy tannins. Needs air or cellar time. Drink now through 2014. 850 cases made."
