2013 Lucienne Vineyards “Smith Vineyard” Pinot Noir, Santa Lucia Highlands
On Sale $34.99
Bright ruby. Heady aromas of ripe red and dark berries, incense and mocha. Concentrated black raspberry and cherry-vanilla flavors show very good energy and focus, with a sexy floral pastille nuance emerging as the wine opens up. The floral element gains strength on the long, juicy, penetrating finish, which is framed by smooth, fully integrated tannins.
