Press / Wine Critic's Reviews
 
Notes from the Winemaker:
Perfumed aromatics unfurl from the glass like blooming flowers. Here, cassis, red fruits and incense meet undertones of wet forest floor. We included whole clusters during fermentation to add the exotic spice that composes the background of this bouquet. One of our lowest yielding sites in 2015, Soberanes Vineyard produced fruit with a big tannin profile that is at once mouth-coating and firm. Thanks to its more robust tannins and acid, the wine will age beautifully through the next decade.

WINEMAKING:
The Pisoni Family is committed to raising and hand-crafting exceptional wines. The limited-production Lucia wines are created using classic, gentle and thoughtful winemaking techniques. Hand-picked and sorted grapes are fermented on native yeasts and aged in carefully selected French oak barrels. Our state-of-the-art winemaking facility uses gravity flow as part of a custom design conceived to merge the estate vineyards and winery. This affords us complete control of the farming and winemaking process, ensuring consistently superior quality.


Ratings & Reviews
93 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (2014 Vintage):
"This site, which was planted in 2006, continues to impress and the 2014 Pinot Noir Soberanes Vineyard is a beauty. Offering a killer bouquet of black raspberry, cassis, crushed flowers and incense, this deep ruby/purple and translucent colored 2014 is medium to full-bodied, has beautiful purity, integrated acidity and a seamless, elegant style that makes it already hard to resist." - Jeb Dunnuck (28th Sep 2016)

93 Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous (2014 Vintage):
"Limpid ruby-red. High-pitched raspberry and candied rose scents are complicated by suggestions of smoky minerals, cola and Asian spices. Juicy, concentrated and pure, offering palate-staining red fruit and spicecake flavors enlivened by a refreshingly bitter hint of blood orange. Gains weight with air and finishes extremely long, displaying a repeating mineral note and supple, even tannins that fold effortlessly into the lush fruit." - Josh Raynolds (July 2016)

92 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine (2014 Vintage):
Dusty, loamy tannins give this a grainy texture, yet the flavors flow freely, with well-distributed anise, underbrush, cedar and wild berry notes. Drink now. 325 cases made." – JL (Sep 30, 2016)
