Jeb Dunnuck 96 Points: “The 2019 Pinot Noir Soberanes Vineyard is also terrific, with lots of spice red and black fruits, spring flowers, and chalky minerality. It’s beautifully textured, medium to full-bodied, and just about seamless on the palate, and while it brings loads of fruit and texture, it stays beautifully balanced and elegant. It’s already impossible to resist yet should cruise for 7-8 years in cold cellars. I’d certainly be thrilled with a bottle on the dinner table.”

 

Jeff Pisoni Tasting Notes: “Flowing form the bottle a shade of dark ruby, the 2019 Lucia Soberanes Vineyard Pinot Noir is a dazzling display of symmetry from this iconic site, with each component in perfect equilibrium. Juicy aromatics of ripe raspberry and red cherry are countered flawlessly with more elegant notes of Asian spice, wet earth, and hints of cedar. Native fermentations of each block, taking place in open-top tanks, are meticulously managed to achieve perfect extraction of flavor, color and tannin. This extra care rewards as incredibly pure flavors of ripe plum, fig jam, and dusty black cherry coat the palate, while velvety tannin is partnered with fresh, vibrant acidity. This wine will age and maintain this balance for years to come.”
