Wine Review: This Pinot is Excellent! It is very dark ruby colored and opens with a shy black raspberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine really comes alive. It is medium bodied, very well balanced, and just stunning. The flavor profile is a delicious spicy black raspberry. The finish is dry and its well managed tannins sail along nicely. This wine would pair perfectly with duck breast. Get some soon as this gem will not last with only 730 cases made. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: The Santa Lucia Highlands Appellation blend Pinot Noir has been one of our most popular wines ever since the 1999 vintage. The 2007 may be one of the finest SLH blends since that 1999 offering. It was aged in approximately 40% new French oak for 10 months before bottling without fining or filtration, we are absolutely thrilled with how this wine is developing in bottle. The wine is medium ruby color; deep, slightly closed, black cherry and smoky aromas; ripe, rich, smoky cherry flavors, complex, silky texture; toasty oak; good structure and balance; long finish. Complex and interesting style with good depth and structure.
