2015 Luli Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir
14.0% alc., $21 but often discounted to $17.99. Master Sommelier Sara Floyd teams with California’s Pisoni Family to make this wine. Doctor’s, Highlands, Montelinda and Leavens vineyards. 12% whole cluster. Oak barrel aged and bottled unfixed and unfiltered. · A tasty core of black cherry and black raspberry fruit is framed by smoky oak. Silky in the mouth, with balanced tannins in a mid weighted style, with a short, but pleasurable finish. Better over time in the glass as the oak overlay fades. Rare to find a Pinot Noir of this quality for under $20. Score: 89. Reviewed November 12, 2017 ARTICLE »
