Winemaker Notes

This is a tour de force from Pisoni, combining the vineyard’s signature power and richness with alluring depth and complexity. Dark as night, the inky color hints at the wine’s muscularity and concentration. The nose offers a medley of aromas from brambly wild raspberry, black cherry and strawberry to cinnamon, clove, dark chocolate and fresh-baked buttery piecrust. Though the palate is dense and extracted, the penetrating red fruit carries a streak of high-toned brightness through to a finish that seems almost endless.

RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
From the Central Coast, the 2012 Pinot Noir Pisoni Vineyard sees 10% whole clusters as well as 75% new oak, the highest of any of these Pinots. Production is 496 cases. It boasts an ethereal, DRC-like perfume of forest floor, black raspberries, spring flowers, and red and black fruits, a medium to full-bodied, supple mouthfeel, good acidity and a broad, savory, lush personality. This vineyard was made famous by Jeff Pisoni and his sons, Gary and Mark. Drink it over the next decade.

Wine Enthusiast
Rich red cherries, raspberries, red currants, concentrated rose petals and hibiscus are cut with an edge of eucalyptus oil, chipped slate and purple sage on this stellar bottling from this producer's 25th vintage. Dark fruits of blueberry, blackberry and black cherry emerge across a deeply layered palate, which is boosted by violet and lavender florality.

Perhaps the most highly regarded appellation within Monterey County, Santa Lucia Highlands AVA benefits from a combination of warm morning sunshine and brisk afternoon breezes, allowing grapes to ripen slowly and fully. The result is concentrated, flavorful wines that retain their natural acidity. Wineries here do not shy away from innovation, and place a high priority on sustainable viticultural practices.

The climatic conditions here are perfectly suited to the production of ripe, rich Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. These Burgundian varieties dominate an overwhelming percentage of plantings, though growers have also found success with Syrah, Riesling and Pinot Gris.
