Santa Lucia Highlands Reserve Pinot Noir

Bottle of Santa Lucia Highlands Reserve Pinot Noir from MacMurray Estate Vineyard

91 Points, Wine Review Online, May 2013 (2012 Santa Lucia Highlands Reserve Pinot Noir)

A dark and intensely flavorful wine, our 2012 Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir has flavors of lavender and boysenberry, with hints of pomegranate and cherry on the palate. A full, silky mouthfeel and fine-grained tannins offer excellent balance, leading the way to a lingering vanilla oak finish.

In 2012, we selected Clone 667 Pinot Noir grapes from Block N09 and the south-facing terraced portion of Block N13 on Olson Ranch, our Pinot Noir vineyard located in the Santa Lucia Highlands. The 2012 growing season in the Santa Lucia Highlands was lengthy and cool, with minimal rain and drying winds that created the perfect conditions for our Pinot Noir. This idyllic harvest delivered well-balanced wines with elegant varietal expression.
