2015 LULI SANTA LUCIA HIGHLANDS PINOT NOIR
100% Pinot Noir from the Santa Lucia Highlands in the California Central Coast. The cool summer temperatures of the Santa Lucia Highlands promote heightened aromatics while the region’s rough granite soils promote natural concentration and low yields for texture and depth. Deep ruby in color, this charming Pinot opens with wild strawberry, rich raspberry, bramble and black tea aromas that lead to a silky palate with layers of flavor, smooth tannins and lingering spice. An elegant and approachable Pinot for fall entertaining.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Another terrific value under this label is the 2014 Pinot Noir Santa Lucia Highlands. Coming from Doctor's, Highlands, Montelinda and Leavens vineyards and fermented with 12% whole clusters, it was aged in barrel and bottled with no fining or filtration. It has charming, classic notes of mulled berries, spice box, autumn leaves and a hint of cola to go with a medium-bodied, rounded, wonderfully fruit-forward and straight up delicious style on the palate. It completely over delivers at the price and readers looking for a high quality Pinot Noir that has real typicity and character should buy a case. It will drink nicely for 2-3 years (probably longer, but why wait)." (2014 vintage, 09/2016)
