This wine displays deep notes of orange peel, cherries, and five-spice and is supported by hints of ginger, strawberry and rhubarb. Our Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir is a luscious mouth-fi lling wine. It is deeply structured with supple tannins centered in the mid-palate. A sweet and sour mix of red and black fruits; penetrating red cherry and blackberry dominate, ending in a clean strawberry and dark cherry finish.

Wine AdvocateOffering up a supple, perfumed and delicate array of kirsch, crushed berries, spice and forest floor, the 2011 Pinot Noir (Santa Lucia Highlands) flows onto the palate with a light, deft texture, bright acidity and a clean, nicely focused finish. This isn't a heavy weight and excels on its aromatics and balance more than power or richness. Enjoy it over the coming 4-6 years. Drink now-2019.

Wine SpectatorGutsy, showing tannic muscle, this offers tidbits of dark berry, with grainy, gripping tannins and notes of cedar and crushed rock. Complete, but should improve with cellaring. Drink now through 2022. 1,693 cases made.
