Winemaker Notes

The 2007 vintage would be most aptly described as the coolest and most even keeled in the past three decades. Both Chardonnay and Pinot Noir have now set new quality standards at Pessagno Winery as a result of the Vintage. Many of my colleagues agree that 2007 may be the Pinot Noir Vintage of our lifetimes! The fourth release of the Lucia Highlands Vineyard Pinot Noir has vastly exceeded our expectations. This wine is deeply colored, rich and elegant, offering deep concentrated layers of cherry, current, and violets and a hint of caramel from oak aging. Stylistically classic, it wine pairs well with Mediterranean cuisine, especially grilled vegetables, seafood, veal, and pork.

It's hard to believe the price on this wonderful Pinot Noir. It's such a beauty. Ripe, rich and opulent, it shows powerful flavors of cherries, raspberries, red currants, anise, cocoa and sandalwood, yet remains elegant and delicate through the long, spicy finish. Just terrific. Swoop this one up while you can. Editor's Choice

Pessagno Winery, California
Pessagno Winery Winery Image
Pessagno Winery is the culmination of a twenty-year vision of Stephen Pessagno, winemaker, to produce limited quantities of exclusive, prestigious single vineyard wines from Monterey and San Benito counties.

Established in 1999 with family and friends, Pessagno Winery is nestled in the scenic Santa Lucia Highlands of Monterey county overlooking the Salinas River where cool climate Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes flourish.

All Pessagno wines are styled for elegance, balance, and finesse, with an emphasis on the maximum varietal character of the grape and respect for the unique expression of each vineyard's Terroir.

Each vineyard is carefully selected for the high quality of its fruit and meticulously overseen during the growing season to intensify the aromas and flavors of the grapes. The wines are handcrafted in separate lots using only the finest winemaking techniques and traditional French oak barrels.

The largest and perhaps most varied of California’s wine-growing regions, the Central Coast produces a good majority of the state's wine. This vast district stretches from San Francisco all the way to Santa Barbara along the coast, and reaches inland nearly all the way to the Central Valley.

Encompassing an extremely diverse array of climates, soil types and wine styles, it contains many smaller sub-AVAs, including San Francisco Bay, Monterey, the Santa Cruz Mountains, Paso Robles, Edna Valley, Santa Ynez Valley and Santa Maria Valley.

While the region could probably support almost any major grape varietiy, it is famous for a few. Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel are among the major ones. The Central Coast is home to many of the state's small, artisanal wineries crafting unique, high-quality wines, as well as larger producers also making exceptional wines.

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
