Lucia Pinot Noir Santa Lucia Highlands 2004

External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

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.

RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.

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.
