Exuberant and bright, the Lucia Santa Lucia Highlands cuvee of Pinot Noir is loaded with red fruits; cherry, ripe pomegranate, wild raspberry and slight baking spice and forest floor. The palate is expansive and rich without being heavy. Gentle tannins act as framework as the wine stretches out into a fine finish. The 2011 reds display a sense of bright fruits leaning more to the red side and full-bodied textures.
Wine Spectator 92 points - Pure and rich, with vivid and ripe wild berry and blackberry, revealing an enticing touch of minty spiciness. Holds and gains depth on the long, deep finish. Drink now through 2020.óJ.L. (Jun 26 2013)

The Lucia Pinot Noir is a blend from the three vineyards in the Santa Lucia Highlands farmed by the Pisoni Family: Pisoni, Garys' and Soberanes Vineyards. This wine is a wonderful representation of the Santa Lucia Highlands and these estate vineyards. The goal is to create a "world-class" appellation blend; barrels for this wine are hand selected, just as for the single-vineyard wines.
Producer
A special place, Pisoni Vineyards expresses the land and climate of the Santa Lucia Highlands and the spirit of the Pisoni Family. The site is a source of exceptional Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Syrah. First planted by Gary Pisoni in 1982, Pisoni Vineyards consists of small vineyard blocks arranged on and around the ridges of the mountainous landscape. Ranging in size from one-half to seventeen acres, the vineyard blocks perch at an altitude of 1,300 feet in the granite-laced mountains of the coastal Santa Lucia Range.
