A big, deep flavored, Pinot Noir from one of the Santa Maria Valley’s premier vineyards. The flavors are bold and pungent, with attractive savory overtones from the 75% whole clusters. Rose petal, sweet red berries, pomegranate and orange peel meld into the resonant, expressive finish. The tannins are soft and extend the finish to perfection.

A stunning wine, from Luceánt Wines, that will linger in your mind for a long while. 100% Pinot Noir. Pair with most lamb dishes to bring out richness. Also venison or duck for the more adventurous. Also a winner with English Stilton or fully flavored cheese such as creamy Chèvre or either Double or Triple Brie.
