2005 Capiaux Pisoni Vineyard Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir

14.7% alc., $46. · Darkly fruited nose with a generous dose of oak. Big and intense with mouth coating dark fruits, moderate fine-grain tannins and a lemon peel note on the finish. Like all the 2005 vintage Pinot Noirs from Capiaux, the oak supersedes the fruit. Score: 87. Reviewed October 3, 2009
