Lucienne Doctor's Vineyard Pinot Noir 2019
|Region||California, Central Coast, Santa Lucia Highlands|
Brilliant red. High-pitched, spice-accented raspberry and cherry aromas, along with hints of woodsmoke, cola and exotic spices. Silky and energetic on the palate, offering alluringly sweet red fruit and floral pastille flavors that deepen and turn spicier as the wine opens up. Fine-grained tannins lend shape to an impressively long, spice-tinged finish that shows excellent clarity and reverberating florality.
Strong smoke aromas surround the black-cherry, loamy soil, crushed granite and iodine elements on the nose of this bottling. Mesquite- and oak-smoked fruit and meat flavors show powerfully on the sip, which is quite savory.
