Wine Review: This dark red colored Pinot was our favorite from a mini 3 bottle flight that we recently covered. It opens with a ripe raspberry and strawberry like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, nicely balanced, and displays harmonious acidity. On the palate, it displays mild red raspberry and gentle strawberry flavors continue with a dash of black pepper mixed in. The finish is dry and its fine tannins are slightly prolonged. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Named after partners Gary Franscioni and Gary Pisoni, this 50 acre vineyard was planted in 1995 along the terraces of the Santa Lucia mountain range, overlooking the Salinas River Valley. Velvet smooth on the palate with rich, medium tannins, this Pinot offers flavors of ripe red fruit, subtle oak, nutmeg-clove-like spice. Winemaker Gary Brookman expects this bottling to drink beautifully over the next 7-10 years.
