93The Wine Advocate

...scented of dark chocolate, warm black cherries, blackcurrants, blackberry pie, olive, cured meats, violet, cast-iron pan, beef drippings and baked black plum. The palate is full-bodied, big and bold with plush, savory fruits, firm, chewy tannins and integrated freshness, finishing very long...

93Wine Spectator

Expressive aromas of blackberry and blueberry pair with smoky garrigue and cracked pepper notes, taking on structure and density toward broad-shouldered tannins.

91-94Vinous / IWC

Blood orange, mint, red cherry jam, pomegranate and wild flowers give the 2017 myriad shades of nuance to play off the wine's creamy, generous feel.


United States, California, Central Coast, Santa Lucia Highlands

Santa Lucia Highlands AVA is a 12-mile long, narrow strip of an appellation wedged along the eastern hillsides of the Santa Lucia mountain range. Given its proximity to Big Sur and the Gabilan Mountain Range to the northeast, Santa Lucia a cool-climate wine growing district. Morning sun is often followed by maritime winds and fog in the afternoon, a weather pattern that prolongs the growing season and means long, gentle ripening of the grapes. Spanish missionaries planted vineyards in the district in the 18th century, but it wasn’t until the 1970s that modern winemakers planted vineyards and began making high quality wine. The district received AVA status in 1991 and today there are 6,000 vineyard acres in the Santa Lucia Highlands. Pinot Noir is the dominant grape planted, followed by Chardonnay and Riesling.


Red Wine, Syrah (Shiraz)

This grape is grown in milder climates and produces a medium-to full-bodied wine. It is also known as Shiraz, but should not be confused with Petit Sirah, which was developed by crossing Syrah with Peloursin.
