90% merlot and 10% cabernet franc. From 3.06 hectares on sand, gravel, and clay, the average vine age is 45 years, plus a one hectare plot that was planted in 1901. Tiny yields of only 25 hl/ha. Aged in 50% new oak and 50% once-used oak. Red cherry f... Devon Magee. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2011 Lucia 750ml

90% merlot and 10% cabernet franc. This 3-hectare vineyard is split into sections, one planted in 1901 in clay and limestone soils across the road from Grand Pontet; two other 40-year old plots located near Monbousquet in clay and siliceous soil.

A blend of fruit from both the Garys' and Pisoni vineyards, the deep ruby/purple-tinged 2004 Pinot Noir includes 10-15% stems. Smoky blueberry, black cherry, and forest floor aromas are followed by a broad, beautifully textured Pinot exhibiting sweet fruit, ripe tannin, a silky style, and gobs of complexity. Consume this alluring red over the next 5-6 years.

The 2008 Pinot Noir (which utilizes about 40% new oak) comes from above the Pisoni and Garys' Vineyards, two of the top sites in the Santa Lucia Highlands. The wine has a perfumed bouquet of blue, red, and black fruits along with some forest floor, underbrush, and subtle background oak. Velvety textured, deep, full-bodied flavors cascade over the palate with a sweetness and purity that are admirable. About 10-15% stems were used in the fermentation, but they don't show in the wine, although I am sure the nicely integrated, tannic structure of the wine is a result of them. Drink it over the next 5-7 years.

The 2008, which was problematic from barrel tastings, has settled down beautifully, and showed very well on three separate occasions. Proprietor Michel Bortolussi has turned out a beautifully pure, deep blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc that... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.

Even better is the 2006 Pinot Noir Garys' Vineyard. Superb aromas of truffles, underbrush, spring flowers, black cherries, and black currants emerge from this deep, full-bodied, exuberant but gorgeously balanced and pure effort. Drink this full-bodied, compelling Pinot over the next 5-6 years.

The 2003 Pinot Noir Garys' Vineyard possesses a dense ruby/plum color along with scents of sweet and sour cherries, flowers, earth, and wood spice, an open-knit texture, a precocious style, plush fruit flavors, and a long finish. Drink it over the next 5-6 years.

Winemaker's Notes:

94 points Jeb Dunnuck (Wine Advocate): Showing darker fruit, as well as additional minerality, the 2011 Pinot Noir Garys' Vineyard is rich and mouth-filling on the palate. Layered, nicely balanced and textured, it's a beautiful effort and will evolve gracefully through 2021. Drink 2015-2021. (Aug 2013)
