Apricots, raisin, prunes. Super aromatic, multilayered silky Pinot. A step above Meiomi, superb Pinot. Enjoyed with crab cakes, fried Brussels sprout salad with Asian flair, Seared Ahi with Ponzu & Wasabi. Delightful.

For the price it's hard to beat. Mellow and deep. Somewhat smokey. Will definitely try it again.

Our Las Alturas Vineyard is located in the southern portion of the Santa Lucia Highlands, known locally as the Mission District. Its coastal climate is cool, but enjoys warmer afternoon temperatures and tamer winds than the northern portion of the appellation. The combination of the climate with site-specific farming consistently produces pinot noirs of great texture, depth and balance. - Winery

Dense, dark garnet color. Aromas of juicy dark fruit, moist soil, vanilla and coco burst out of the glass. The palate is so rich that it can almost be chewed on. Flavors of pie filling, plum, cured meats and root beer enliven the senses. This wine has str

Well-orchestrated rich tight dark and reliant on creamy espresso-laced oak this is fun to drink. If oak is your catnip this is about as good as it gets. Drink now through 2022. J.L. Wine Spectator.
