The 2017 Pinot Noir Starscape (formerly Floodgate) is another gorgeous, deeply expressive Pinot from Sean Capiaux. Energetic and vibrant in the glass, the 2017 offers striking purity from start to finish. I especially admire the focus and delineation here.

The 2017 Pinot Noir Wilson Vineyard captures all the best qualities the vintage had to offer. Dark and powerful but with beams of salinity cutting through the fruit, the 2017 possesses terrific energy and vibrancy. Graphite, plum, black cherry, menthol, sage and licorice add to an impression of brooding intensity and power. This is an especially virile style for the coast.

The 2017 Pinot Noir Pisoni is a pliant, succulent wine that shows the textural richness that is such a signature of this Santa Luca Highlands site. Mint, wildflowers and blood orange perk up the bright red berry fruit nicely. Pisoni Pinots can at times be a bit heavy, but Sean Capiaux deftly balances fruit intensity with vibrancy in this inviting, beautifully crafted Pinot.

The 2017 Pinot Noir Old Vine (Russian River Valley) is a rich, heady wine. Ripe black cherry, game, inky blue purplish fruit, smoke, incense and licorice give the 2017 much of its distinctive personality. Muscular tannins add to an impression of pure power. This is a decidedly imposing appellation-level wine that needs time in bottle to be at its best. That said, the 2017 is super impressive, especially within its peer group
