2016 Peterson Vineyard Pinot Noir
Intensely aromatic, the nose evokes strawberry compote, rhubarb, winter spices, forest floor, and cardamom. With an elegant texture, this wine showcases ultra fine tannins that frame a palate of high-toned wild berries, lavender, and savory game — it finishes with drive and focus that bring its dense core of fruit and well-balanced acidity into focus. It’s a quintessential Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir destined to be beloved by fans of the appellation.
