2015 Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir
Handcrafted by renowned winemaker Ed Kurtzman, the Mansfield-Dunne 2015 Peterson Vineyard pinot noir was aged in French oak (25% new) for 11 months before bottling. Deep garnet color, ripe nose of cranberries and baking spices. The palate is soft at first and lush, with moderate acidity and a dense core of chewy pomegranate and blackberry. The finish is long with a good balance of berry fruit and acidity. Tannin comes in at the very end of the finish. Drink this from late 2017 through 2022.
