Winemaker's Notes

The 2007 Lone Oak Pinot Noir tantalizes with aromas of wild cherry, juicy raspberry and hints of leather interlaced with bright pomegranate and earthy mushroom flavors. The silkiness on the palate leads into a feminine, well-choreographed and elegant finish.

Our vineyards in the Santa Lucia Highlands take advantage of some of the best growing conditions in California for ultra-premium Pinot Noir. The southeast facing slopes sit above the fog, allowing the vines to take full advantage of the sun. This long exposure to the sun, combined with the cool temperatures from Monterey Bay, gives the vineyards a longer growing season, increasing complexity in the fruit.

Critical Acclaim

"Medium-deep ruby color; deep, tight, black cherry and spice aromas with some smoky notes underneath; rich, ripe, slightly closed black cherry and spicy flavors with some smoky, sweet oak notes; silky texture; good structure and balance; long finish. Lush, smoky-cherry flavors are so layered and delicious now and yet this wine has a bunch of time ahead of it. Make sure you give this a good hour of air before you drink it."
94 Points

"Pinot Noir doesn't get much riper in fruit than this. It detonates on the palate with a blast of raspberries and red cherries that taste like they were baked into a pie. Oak adds the usual rich notes of vanilla and caramel cream. Not particularly subtle, but decadent and delicious."

Never tried this wine; gave as a gift at a dinner, and was embarrassed by the host announcing the cork was compromised; the wine was poured out, the bottle untasted.

this is a junk wine. Generally it is harder to go wrong on Pinot. This wine is a junk wine.
