Luli Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir 2013

$23.99

Fantastic new Pinot Noir discovery and an amazing value.Luli Wines are made by Jeff Pisoni in partnetship with Master Sommelier Sara Floyd. Grapes from this fine 2013 vintage were sourced from select, sustainably farmed vineyards in the Santa Lucia Highlands. The fruit was hand-sorted before fermentation on indigenous yeast and aged in neutral French oak barrels to let the terroir shine through. The wine is bottled unfined and unfiltered and is rewarding to drink in its youth, but will also reward with some bottle age. From the winery: "Both powerful and elegant. The aromatics are bright and vibrant with notes of wild strawberry, boysenberry, rose petal and earl grey tea. The palate is broad and full, with firm tannins giving structure and length with lasting flavors of bing cherries and baking spices. These are delicious, budget-friendly wines from Luli, the Pisoni family's project with Master Sommelier Sara Floyd.

Pomegranate, bing cherry, raspberry, spice and tea notes. Best though is the wild strawberry with a long finish. Wonderful, affordable Pinot Noir! Delicious now or in 3 years. Great value über $25!

First time tasting Luli - great wine for price but has hints of under ripeness. Plus a cockatiel

Best medium bodied Pinot for the money. Walks and talks like Pinot should.

Dark fruit nose with a hint of smoke. Dark cherry, fig and cranberry on the palate with a hint of minerals. A lower priced SLH pinot, but still pretty good.

Don't typically drink Pinot Noir. Usually prefer heavier wines. But found this one quite tasteful. Light but flavorful not overly fruity light non lingering tanin.

I like this one. Does not end sweet. Ends drier. Sweet for a sec then dries out. Black cherry. Dry end. Hold its own with food. Grilled tuna recommended.
