"This red offers a deft mix of dried red cherry, berry and crushed red plum flavors supported by medium-grained tannins and fresh acidity. Turns plush midpalate, followed by a finish filled with suave minerality. Drink now through 2023. -K.M." (WS)

Winery Notes:
Winemaker Notes:
Highlands’ Pinots are known for their dense fruit core and this release is no exception. Lush dark berry and bing cherry aromas and flavors are at the fore. There is intriguing notes of sage, thyme, and violets, with a nice overlay of vanillin-oak from the French cooperage. Tannins are dry and medium-weight, balancing with the trademark SLH cool climate acidity.

Drinking well now, the S.V. Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir will also reward a few years of patient cellaring. It should prove a perfect pairing with grilled salmon, seared duck breast, and most lamb preparations.
