Deep ruby as it fills the glass, this Pinot Noir offers a stunning bouquet of fruit, spice and floral notes. Black cherry, currant, plum, and rose petal interweave with delicate savory notes of sage, wet earth, and baking spice. Partial whole cluster fermentation and meticulous cap management have yielded soft, elegant tannin together with a persistent finish. Perpetual afternoon winds sweep away any lingering morning fog during the growing season, preserving the acidity that becomes the backbone upon which this wine is built.
Located next to Gary’s Vineyard in the Santa Lucia Highlands, the Soberanes Vineyard is a joint venture between the Pisoni and Franscioni Families. The site features tightly spaced vines and is planted to 33 acres of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Syrah. The Pisoni Clone (LaTâche) is the exclusive Pinot Noir clone selection for this vineyard.
