A.p. Vin Pinot Noir Santa Lucia Highlands Rosella's Vineyard 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

94 points Jeb Dunnuck (Wine Advocate): From a vintage that had big yields and heavy cluster weights (harvest started mid-September and finished late in October), the 2014 Pinot Noir Rosella's Vineyard (saw 11 months in 50% new oak) is a stunner that's up with the creme de la creme of the vintage. Forest floor, strawberries, plums, earth and underbrush all emerge from this medium to full-bodied, elegant and silky Pinot Noir that has fine tannin, no hard edges and impeccable balance. It's another terrific wine from winemaker Andrew Vingiello. Drink: 2015-2023. (8/13/16)
