2018 Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir
A cool-climate-styled offering, the 2018 Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir is defined by notes of violets, forest floor, sage, black cherry, dried raspberry, molasses, vanilla, and toast. The palate shows a structural finesse between acidity, oak, soft tannins — our two vineyards' climates show themselves and truly compliment one another in this wine.
