This years exceptional Pinot Noir quartet is completed by this striking wine from the Santa Lucia Highlands -- a long and scenically beautiful fillet of land lying on the landward side of the Santa Lucia Mountain Range next to the chill waters of Monterey Bay, and alternately fog-chilled and breeze-freshened during summer. The Pinot is dark and sweet-scented, with discreet spice and refined black cherry; theres a peony allure to give it lift, too. Its vivid and mouth-filling yet structured, poised and fresh, too: a Pinot that proves that the natural wealth which derives from Californias light and soils can work superbly in delivering Pinot of both nuance and sensual charm.

Rich, opulent aromas of black-cherry cordial and caramel are thick but delicious on the nose of this bottling. Sandy tannins frame the creamy cherry and blackberry flavors, which are lifted by star anise and licorice accents and lead into an oaky finish.
