Deep, shimmering ruby red. A highly perfumed bouquet evokes fresh red and blue fruits, baking spices and potpourri, and a zesty mineral overtone builds with air. Juicy, seamless and energetic on the palate, offering vibrant, mineral-accented raspberry, boysenberry and cherry preserve, rose pastille and spicecake flavors that deepen through the midpalate. Conveys a suave blend of power and finesse and finishes with slow-mounting tannins, fine delineation and impressive, floral- and mineral-driven persistence. (JR)
Soberanes Vineyard sits adjacent to Garys’ Vineyard in the Santa Lucia Highlands and owned and farmed by the Pisoni and Franscioni families and are among the most sought-after sources for quality grapes by a great many of California’s premier Pinot Noir makers. This particular bottling from the Soberanes site under Pisoni’s Lucia label is a deep and marvelously rich, eminently collectable Pinot whose grasp is equal to its considerable reach. It intimates lushness yet is surprisingly agile and has the acute focus, energy and inherent layering of an ageworthy wine that will only get better with time. As is fine Pinot’s wont, it is wholly delectable in its youth, but only those willing to set it aside for a half-dozen or so years will come to appreciate just how good it really is.
The 2018 Pinot Noir Soberanes Vineyard is slightly more Burgundian, with lots of darker, earthy red and black fruit as well as spice, forest floor, and autumn leaf and black tea notes as well as medium to full body, a rounded, nicely textured mouthfeel, and building tannins. It’s another terrific wine, yet I think a year or two in bottle will do it well. 94+
A deep mahogany aroma meets with baked boysenberry on the nose of this bottling by the Pisoni family. It's rich on the palate, where boysenberry jam is lifted by fennel, licorice and wild-sagebrush flavors, all wrapped in silky tannins. (MK)
