Wild strawberries, sappy flowers, rose, and earthy mineral notes define the 2021 Pinot Noir Soberanes Vineyard, another terrific Santa Lucia Highlands release from this estate. It has beautiful purity, fine tannins, and a great finish. Fermentedwith 15% stems and aged in 40% new oak, it will evolve nicely for 7-8 years.

    About This Wine

    Sharing a fence with the renowned Garys’ Vineyard, the Soberanes vineyard in the Santa Lucia Highlands was planted by the Pisoni and Franscioni families in 2006. The 2021 vintage in the Santa Lucia Highlands was one of the finest in recent memory — the weather was mild and uneventful throughout the growing season. The fermentations immediately pushed aromatics reminiscent of a bramble thicket — beautiful, dark, berry fruit. Hints of clove and licorice also emerged in the wines later during barrel ageing, with rich blackberry baking spice and chestnut coming through in the final blend. The 2021 vintage is without a doubt one of the best we have seen, and we are proud to share it with you.
