Pisoni Vineyards Estate Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir 2015

$79.99

New release if the original Pisoni Pinot Noir - Limited previous vintage 96+ points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:  "Pisoni family's Estate Pinot Noir is one of the top handful of Pinot Noirs coming out of California today, and certainly, the site is one of the Grand Cru vineyards in California. From the warmer, southern end of the Santa Lucia Highlands and granite soils, the Pinot Noir Estate offers up a sensational array of blackberries, blueberries, violets, crushed rocks and smoke. Full-bodied, concentrated, surprisingly firm and tight, it has gorgeous extract, plenty of tannin and a blockbuster finish. This is a serious and age-worthy 2013 from the Pisoni Family that needs 2-3 years of bottle age, but will keep for 10-15 years. ... ...This benchmark estate in the Santa Lucia Highlands is run by the Pisoni family, with Mark Pisoni managing the vineyards and Jeff Pisoni making the wines. While they only release a single estate Pinot Noir under the Pisoni label (always 100% from the Pisoni Vineyard), they also release a number of highly recommended Pinots and Syrahs (from different vineyards) under their Lucia line."

Classic youthful SLH pinot flavors of cherry cola, rose petals, menthol, and eucalyptus that evolve into brown sugar, cherry cobbler, earth, milk chocolate, and iced tea. Incredible depth. Lengthy finish.
