98 Points ROAR makes some of the best and hardest to get new Pinot Noirs in California. Get the new release BEFORE the ratings come out! 98 Points Jeb Dunnuck: "Coming from the warmer, southern end of the appellation and slightly more granitic soils, the 2018 Pinot Noir Pisoni Vineyard is certainly my favorite in the lineup. Deep ruby/purple, with a smoking bouquet of red currants, wild strawberries, forest floor, violets, and spice, it has beautiful minerality, full-bodied richness, building structure, and a great, great finish. Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir doesn't get much better. This beauty will benefit from a year in bottle and drink brilliantly for a decade or more. Unfortunately, there are only 265 cases made." 94 Points Wine Spectator: "Harmonious, densely packed flavors of ripe dark fruits and Asian spice are layered with chocolate cream accents. Fleshy tannins and acidity power this version, leading to a long, rich finish that features concentrated minerally and underbrush notes. Drink now through 2026." Roar is owned by Gary & Rosella Franscioni, who planted and own the famed Rosella's Vineyard, Gary's Vineyard and Pisoni Vineyard in California's Central Coast.
