2018 Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir
The 2018 Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir has a medium dark ruby, garnet color and a spicy, cool-climate nose of violets, forest floor, sage, black cherry, dried raspberry, molasses, vanilla and toast. On the palate, there's an interplay between acidity, oak, soft tannin and flavors that mimic the nose. This shows classic SLH qualities. The finish is long with the tannins firming up. Drink between 2020 through 2028.
