K&L Notes

Named for the sounds of the coastal winds and mountain creeks of the Santa Lucia Highlands, Roar was launched in 2003 by Gary and Rosella Franscioni. The duo, along with Gary Pisoni and Adam and Dianna Lee of Siduri wines, helped catapult the Santa Lucia Highlands to fame with phenomenal, high-scoring vineyard-designated wines from Rosella's and Garys' Vineyards (the Franscionis co-own the latter with Pisoni). This, too, is already sold out at the winery. Sourced entirely from Garys' Vineyard, this has that site's more elegant profile, with notes of smoke and blue fruit on the nose and in the mouth, complemented by the baking spices associated with French oak. It's still very youthful and tight on the palate, with firm, chewy tannins keeping the juicy fruit flavors from gushing forth, but they're there, and just need a little air or time to emerge.
