2017 Pinot Noir, Soberanes Vineyard
The Soberanes Vineyard, located in the heart of the Santa Lucia Highlands, builds upon a tradition of high quality growing practices. Working together, the Pisoni and Franscioni families, whose friendship spans three generations and are known for the Pisoni, Gary’s', Rosella’s and Sierra Mar Vineyards, added Soberanes Vineyard to their portfolio. The Salinas Valley fog and wind allow for slow ripening — a requirement for producing intense, yet elegant Pinot Noir.
Ripe aromas of crushed black cherries and sandalwood are reminiscent of late summer. The palate is bold and intriguing with hints of Monterey raspberry. Dense yet luxurious with supple tannins on the finish.
