2015 Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir
Our Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir is a blend of Pinots from several specially selected vineyards. It amply demonstrates all the characteristics that have made this wine region world famous for its Pinot Noirs.
The Santa Lucia Highlands have long been a focus for us at Bernardus as we recognized early on the phenomenal potential of this great region. We have been producing small vineyard-designate bottlings from several of our favorite vineyards for many years. Recently, we have increased our vineyard selections and felt the time was right to bottle our Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir.
At Bernardus, all our Pinot Noir grapes are hand-picked, sorted and fermented in small, individual batches. They are then aged in the finest oak barrels until final blending, just before bottling.
The robe of our 2015 edition is a beautiful deep crimson. The nose exhibits bright aromas of cherry and red berries with hints of spice. The palate is soft and round with ripe red fruit flavors and deliciously smooth - perfect for drinking soon - but capable of aging for several years to come.
