This wine showcases a combination of fruit from the Pisoni, Garys' and Soberanes vineyards, where yields were generally 50% lower than normal. Despite its youthfulness, the Lucia Pinot Noir already shows signs of finesse. The fruit offers a gorgeous balance of acid and sugar levels, the result of cooling ocean breezes and foggy mornings in the vineyards. Once poured, the wine releases elegant aromas of raspberry, violets and crushed rose petal that linger in the glass. These floral notes also persevere in the mouth, producing a rich, elongated finish. Suave, layered tannins deliver great texture and length.
Wine SpectatorRich, full and expressive, offering tiers of blackberry, wild berry, plum and raspberry flavors enlivened by zesty acidity and supported by fine-grained tannins, which makes the finish long and lively. Drink now through 2023. 410 cases made.
