LUCIA 2012 PINOT NOIR SANTA LUCIA HIGHLANDS 750mL

Lucia Wines are hand-crafted by the Pisoni Family. These wines represent a commitment to producing small lots of exceptional wines from their cool-climate growing region. Working only with vineyards they farm, Gary, Mark and Jeff Pisoni produce Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Syrah and a Rosť of Pinot Noir. Their goal is for each wine to represent the vineyard and vintage, while at the same time displaying a sense of balance, intensity of flavor and ageability.

This bottling of Pinot Noir is comprised entirely of fruit from Pisoni Vineyards and Garysí Vineyard. Being a blend, this wine combines great attributes of both vineyards, and at the same time is a wonderful representation of the Santa Lucia Highlands. During the blending process, specific barrels are chosen that are more approachable young, as opposed to the single-vineyard wines, which sometimes benefit from more age.

ANTONIO GALLONI 92 POINTS - "This is a gorgeous set of wines from Lucia, the Pisoni family's label for all of their wines that emerge from vineyards other than Pisoni itself. The Syrahs are the clear highlights among these 2012s. Over the last few years Jeff and Mark Pisoni have been experimenting with whole clusters, an approach that seems to bring layers of dimension and complexity to the wines. In 2012, all three Syrahs are exceptional.

"A gorgeous appellation-level Pinot, the 2012 Pinot Noir is laced with dark red stone fruit, plum, cherry, spice and new leather. This fleshy, impeccably balanced Pinot delivers outstanding quality, not to mention considerable near and medium-term appeal. Sweet rose petal and cinnamon notes linger on the perfumed finish. What a gorgeous wine this is. The 2012 was made entirely from estate fruit."
