Roar Pinot Noir Santa Lucia Highlands 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

Dark fruit, leather, and toasted oak with light overtones of honey evolve into blackberry, cola and cherry, opening to include chocolate shavings and floral accents. A woody, almost evergreen, perfume enriches the lower-tone fruit through a long, dense, meaty finish full of tobacco, leather, cherry and blackberry. 1,360 cases produced. Alcohol 14.4%. Not yet reviewed; 2014 vintage rated 91 points by Josh Raynolds (Vinous).

We are a family winery specializing in small lots of Santa Lucia Highland's Pinot Noir, Syrah and beginning in the summer of 2009, Chardonnay. Our roots in the Santa Lucia Highlands are quite deep. Both Gary and Rosella 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. 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

2015 Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir: Grapes for our 2015 Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir were harvested August 18th-September 9th at 25.6 - 28.4 brix. The juice spent an average of 28 days on the skins before being pressed to French oak barrels for 10 months aging. The wine was racked once, and bottled unfiltered and unfined in July 2016. Winemaker Notes: Drawing on aspects of all of our vineyards, our 2015 Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir is a wonderful expression of what the region has to offer. Dark fruit, leather, and toasted oak with light overtones of honey evolve into blackberry, cola, and cherry, opening to include chocolate shavings and floral accents. A woody, almost evergreen, perfume enriches the lower-tone fruit through a long, dense, meaty finish full of tobacco, leather, cherry, and blackberry. Alcohol: 14.4% pH: 3.73 TA: 0.58 g/100ml ** Only 12 in Stock **
