Winemaker's Notes

A classic expression of our PISONI VINEYARD – Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir, this wine delivers all the deep color, rich concentration and robust fruit that have become hallmarks of the vineyard. On the palate, the structure and refreshing acidity of the 2007 vintage frame decadent layers of blackberry, framboise and strawberry pie—providing an added element of grace and precision to this famously powerful wine.

Critical Acclaim

"Just gorgeous now, and should age for a while. Shows the clarity and articulation of most Pinot Noirs from this vineyard, with massive flavors of cherries, raspberries, oranges, vanilla and cinnamon spice. Yet rich acidity and finely ground tannins provide the structure for balance. Drink now through 2012."
94 Points

"Good full deep red. Deep, musky aromas of raspberry, blueberry and smoked meat. Large-scaled and powerful but not especially sweet. There's huge fruit here but in a distinctly masculine style and in need of time in bottle. This will age on its sheer size and volume. The tannins are strong but fine-grained. Anne Moses describes this wine as more restrained at this early stage than the 2005 and notes that the fruit was picked late in what was a cool year for this site."
