Luli Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir 2014

$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 2014 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.

One of the best Pinots outhere for the price. Bright cherry and creme fraiche with a nice vanilla finish!

Very nice wine. Good balance and the whole cluster element should do nicely. Still needs some integration time but should be super in 2-4 years.
