Surh Luchtel Pinot Noir Santa Lucia Highlands Garys' Vineyard 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Ripe, assertive, intense, concentrated are the words used described this wine, atypical for Pinot Noir but typical for Garys' Vineyard Pinot Noir. The 2006 Garys’ Vineyard Pinot Noir falls somewhere in between the cool 2005 vintage and the hot 2004 vintage. It has the hallmark Garys’ Vineyard wild berry, baked cherry and gaminess but is more restrained than in the past. Aged 4 months longer than usual in French oak, 67% new, it will take a bit longer than usual to show its full potential.

Our goal is to make balanced and yet concentrated wines that display the fruit and the character of the vintage and region. From our full-bodied intense Cabernet Sauvignon to our softer Bordeaux blend Mosaique, our wines are meant to be a part of food, to be enjoyed with your loved ones frequently. Our production is extremely limited, usually each batch consisting of no more than a few hundred cases. Our wines are truly handcrafted and we hope that our passion shows through in our wines. Surh Luchtel wines are the result of collaboration between two long time friends Don Surh and Gary Luchtel. First as housemates in college in the Oakland hills in the late 70’s, we became friends over many a bottle and discovered that our wine interests were more than casual. Read less
