Crafted to express the land’s identity from which they originate, Lucia wines are among the finest examples of American Pinot Noir. They represent the epitome of a farming family’s devotion to their land and commitment to its stewardship. The Pisoni family was one of the first to plant grapes in the Santa Lucia Highlands. They’ve since developed some of the area’s Grand Cru level sites, including Pisoni Estate, Garys’, and Soberanes. Their 2018 Soberanes Pinot reflects their style of powerfully captivating wines, stamped by their origin and marked with elegance.

Renowned winemaker Jeff Pisoni shows off his ability to articulate Soberanes’ most profound and individualistic attributes. He ages this wine for eleven months in primarily neutral barrels to integrate the natural acidity, rich flavors, and soft tannins into a beautifully aromatic Pinot Noir.

Soberanes Vineyard is synonymous with excellence and is the latest site developed by the Pisoni’s & Franscioni’s, whose families have been farming the area for 100+ years. Shaped by fog blankets, elevation, Pacific influence, and granite-laden soils, Soberanes’ brilliant personality decadently emerges from this wine.

Description

2018 LUCIA “SOBERANES VINEYARD” PINOT NOIR

“Deep, shimmering ruby red. A highly perfumed bouquet evokes fresh red and blue fruits, baking spices and potpourri, and a zesty mineral overtone builds with air. Juicy, seamless and energetic on the palate, offering vibrant, mineral-accented raspberry, boysenberry and cherry preserve, rose pastille and spicecake flavors that deepen through the midpalate. Conveys a suave blend of power and finesse and finishes with slow-mounting tannins, fine delineation and impressive, floral- and mineral-driven persistence.”
95 Points
“The 2018 Pinot Noir Soberanes Vineyard is slightly more Burgundian, with lots of darker, earthy red and black fruit as well as spice, forest floor, and autumn leaf and black tea notes as well as medium to full body, a rounded, nicely textured mouthfeel, and building tannins. It’s another terrific wine…”

“A deep mahogany aroma meets with baked boysenberry on the nose of this bottling by the Pisoni family. It’s rich on the palate, where boysenberry jam is lifted by fennel, licorice and wild-sagebrush flavors, all wrapped in silky tannins.”
94 Points
“… a deep and marvelously rich, eminently collectable Pinot whose grasp is equal to its considerable reach. It intimates lushness yet is surprisingly agile and has the acute focus, energy and inherent layering of an ageworthy wine that will only get better with time. As is fine Pinot’s wont, it is wholly delectable in its youth, but only those willing to set it aside for a half-dozen or so years will come to appreciate just how good it really is.”
