"From the Santa Lucia Highlands’ most famous vineyard, the 2013 Pinot Noir Pisoni Vineyard exhibits the darker fruits that seem to emerge from this site. (This is reportedly an old suitcase clone from the most famous vineyard in Vosne-Romanée.) This wine displays the classic and ethereal forest floor, blackcurrant and black cherry notes with some spring flowers thrown in for additional dimension. The wine is creamy, round, juicy, succulent, and medium to full-bodied. Drink it over the next 5-7 years."
