Gary Pisoni is the iconic grower whose Pisoni Vineyard Pinot Noir has brought worldwide attention to the Santa Lucia Highlands. Planted with renowned “Pisoni clone”, this unique vineyard produces amazing Pinots which can rival the best red Burgundies. We are particularly honored to be among the select few to receive fruit from Gary Pisoni.
All our grapes are hand picked and sorted at the winery for maximum quality. They are destemmed and gently pumped into small fermenters, each with a different yeast, and hand punched two to three times each day in order to extract every bit of flavor. Once fermentation and pressing were complete, the wines are aged in French oak barrels for ten months before final blending and bottling.
Our 2010 Pisoni exhibits a beautiful crimson robe. Aromas show notes of red cherry and cranberry along with hints of oak. The flavors are full of juicy red fruits, accented by notes of earth and spice. This wine will age beautifully for many years in a proper cellar.
