Lucas & Lewellen's 2008 'Goodchild High 9 Vineyard' Pinot Noir comes from a small cool-climate site in the Santa Maria Valley. With vines along both sides of the acclaimed Foxen Wine Trail, the Goodchild High 9 Vineyard consistently produces prize-winning Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, and this limited production vintage is no different.
The 2008 Pinot noir garnered 91 Points from Affairs of the Vine, recognized as one of the industry's top wine education companies. The Pinot was also awarded a Best of Class and Gold Medal at the Central Coast Wine Competition, a Gold Medal at the Orange County Wine Competition, and was named 'Exceptional' by Dan Berger, an internationally known and well-respected wine writer.
Barrel aged for 10 months in French oak barrels, this dark, ruby red colored Pinot Noir has ripe black cherry and purple plum characteristics with hints of tea, spice and leather on the nose. Flavors of blackberry and raspberry mingle with light notes of toasty French oak and a hint of lime zest blends with black cherry on the deliciously smooth, lingering finish.
