Roar Pinot Noir Pisoni Vineyard Santa Lucia Highlands 2015

External Review by We Speak Wine:

ROAR Wines is a small family winery specializing in small lots of Santa Lucia Highland’s Pinot Noir, Syrah and Chardonnay. Both Gary and Rosella Franscioni grew up in California’s agricultural heartland where Gary’s family has farmed for over 100 years. After graduating from Cal Poly with a degree in agribusiness, Gary took over the running of the family farm business, which owned and managed over 200 acres of row crops in the Salinas Valley. In 2001, after working with several wineries to develop the pedigree of the vineyards and the region, they began making their own wine. As third generation growers, the goal with ROAR Wines is to make small lots of wine that are a pure reflection of the Santa Lucia Highlands, and in particular, the signature flavors of the vines. The name ROAR comes from the sound of the Monterey Bay winds that roar through the vineyards, as well as the thrilling sound of a roaring crowd. ** Only 6 in Stock **

Recognizing the region's potential for premium wine grapes, we planted Rosella's Vineyard in 1996. We also co-own and manage the Garys' Vineyard with Gary Pisoni of Pisoni Vineyard. Read less

Vintage: 2011 10/23/2013

Pure and ripe, with flavors centered around lively raspberry, spice, cinnamon and cedar. Graceful and refined, ending with a long, juicy finish of red berry. Drink now through 2023. 278 cases made. -JL The most sweetly fruited and approachable, the 2011 Pinot Noir Pisoni Vineyard has sweet strawberry, kirsch, underbrush, spice box and licorice aromas and flavors all soaring from the glass. Medium-bodied, rich and supple, with no hard edges and a hard-to-resist profile, this knockout Pinot Noir will deliver the goods over the coming 4-5 years. Drink now-2019. ** Only 3 in Stock **

Vintage: 2010 09/26/2013

All of the hallmarks of this site come through in the 2010 Pinot Noir Pisoni. It is a typical Pisoni Pinot loaded with expressive, perfumed fruit that is only slightly tempered by a cool summer that pushed the harvest back to early and mid-October. Still, there is excellent depth and density in the Pisoni considering the vintage. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2018. Rich and extracted, with firm, taut tannins that seem to be a signature of the young wines of this vintage, it has plenty of push to the flavors yet ends up on the drying side. Best from 2013 through 2022. 250 cases made. -JL ** Only 1 in Stock **
