The Vineyard: Grown exclusively from the Pisoni, Garys’, and Soberanes vineyards, the Lucia appellation-based wines are a wonderful representation of their estate vineyards, of which each block is cultivated to the same high standards. These wines offer excellent value and Jeb Dunnuck has previously described these AVA blends as “a perfect example of the incredible quality that’s consistently coming from this estate.”
FMW 95 Points: “.The fruit for this 2022 bottling was sourced from the Pisoni Estate, Garys’ and Sobernes properties. The 2022 is a complex wine that gets out of the starting cage with bright notes of strawberries, cured meats, and a touch of earthiness, and light floral notes. This well-structured wine is layered, with red stone fruit, sandalwood, and a touch of cranberries on the palate. The wine finishes with long and silky smooth tannins.”
Jeff Pisoni Notes: “Entirely estate-farmed and sourced from these premier vineyard sites within the Santa Lucia Highlands, the 2022 Lucia Estate Cuvée of Pinot Noir represents our continued dedication to excellence in farming and winemaking. A sumptuous blend of 60% Pisoni Vineyard, 23% Garys’ Vineyard, and 17% Soberanes Vineyard, this wine offers up enticing aromas of strawberry compote, juicy cranberry, sandalwood, and black tea leaves, all contained within the embrace of its deep ruby hue. Carefully monitored fermentation temperatures and methodical extraction techniques have produced a wine of remarkable depth, concentration, and complexity. Layers of black cherry, Mission fig, spiced plum, and berry crumble provide a stepping stone for more subtle hints of fresh sage, clove, and vanilla bean to make
their voices heard. A true snapshot of these wind-swept vines, this Pinot Noir finishes with vibrant acidity and a distinct, yet noticeably
approachable structure. Don’t be surprised to see this wine continuing to amaze for years to come.”
