Capiaux Cellars Pinot Noir Santa Lucia Highlands Pisoni Vineyard 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

93 points Robert Parker: The 2008 Pinot Noir Pisoni Vineyard (aged in 50% new French oak) exhibits gorgeous scents of raspberries, flowers, forest floor and a hint of graphite. This opulent, rich, medium to full-bodied Pinot is super-pure, beautifully textured and luscious. Enjoy it over the next 4-5 years. (Feb 2011) 15% alcohol. 335 cases produced.

Good full red with a hint of amber. Ripe cherry, raspberry and a hint of cotton candy on the nose and palate, complicated by flowers and coffee bean. Dense, supple and sweet, with subtle earth tones adding complexity. Very ripe, fleshy, expressive p... Stephen Tanzer's IWC.
