LUCIA PINOT NOIR, SANTA LUCIA HIGHLANDS 2014 375ml HALF-BOTTLE
Vivid red. Pungent red berry, cherry liqueur and vanilla scents are sharpened by a suggestion of peppery spices and a smoky mineral quality. Intense raspberry, spicecake and floral pastille flavors put on weight and gain sweetness in the glass while maintaining vivacity. Unwinds very nicely with air and finishes with resonating florality, appealing sweetness and slow-building tannins. This wine is made from fruit grown in the Pisoni, Garys' and Soberanes vineyards.
A supple, understated style that's not without intensity and range. Woody nutmeg scents fold in with the spicy tannins, making this a wine of immediate appeal. Drink now. 940 cases made. Issue Sep 30, 2016 JL
If you want to get a feel for the quality of an estate, their base appellation level cuvee is a good place to start. In this case, Lucia's 2014 Pinot Noir Santa Lucia Highlands is a perfect example of the incredible quality that's consistently coming from this estate. A blend of the Pisoni, Garys' and Soberanes vineyards in the Santa Lucia Highlands, this plump, forward, concentrated and downright sexy beauty isn't for those craving lightweight aromas and flavors and is almost bursting at the seams with notions of framboise, wild strawberries, spice and crushed flowers. A rich, powerful wine, it has medium to full-bodied richness, impeccable balance and a core of sweet fruit that just begs you to take another sip. Buy a case of this hedonistic beauty and drink it over the coming 4-5 years. 28th Sep 2016 2016 - 2021
