Lucia Pinot Noir, Pisoni, California, USA 2018
Regular price £58.40
Gary Pisoni and his sons are triply blessed: with one of California’s great vineyard sites, with an obsessive attention to detail, and with the good taste to know when to leave well alone and let the grapes do the talking. Specialising in Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grown in Monterey County’s Santa Lucia Highlands, they bottle a single Pinot Noir under their estate label, the rest of the fruit finding its way into their second label, Lucia. Both offer arrestingly pure, focused, evocative wines.
Lucia Pinot Noir 2018
With a gorgeous blend of refined structure and succulent fruit, this complex Pinot Noir offers cherry and boysenberry aromas alongside sage and spice notes. Displaying both intensity and purity, this is a wine that is completely accessible in youth but has plenty of capacity to develop further.
