2019 Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir
Our 2019 Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir has a bright, clear appearance and a medium dark, ruby color. The spicy, classic Santa Lucia Highlands nose has notes of dried lavender, violets and sweet vanilla. On the palate, there are flavors of strawberry preserves, root beer, white pepper, salted caramel, seared mushrooms and well-integrated tannins. The finish is very fruit forward and has plenty of acidity to add to its length.
