"Very deep red color. Complex aroma profile of orange, red cherry, cola, anise, and vanilla bean. With some air, subtle notes of roasted strawberry pie, jasmine, and lemon-zest. Once on the palate, flavors broaden towards citrus and red fruit. With plush tannins and bright acidity, the texture offers a beautiful abundance of concentration. While this youthful Pinot Noir shows restraint, it boasts immense potential for the future. Enjoy now through 2032."
~Bill Brosseau, Director of Winemaking
The Soberanes Vineyard is the fifth and newest vineyard in the Pisoni and Franscioni family partnership. It is located in the heart of the Santa Lucia Highlands and builds upon a tradition of high quality hand-winegrowing. Gary Pisoni says the Soberanes Vineyard is their best property to date and they are expecting great vintages from it in the future because they have been able to apply all of their experience in this new location. There are 27 acres of the Pisoni clone Pinot Noir planted and 8 acres of Chardonnay. The property is adjacent to Garys’ Vineyard with an east/northeast orientation at 400 feet in elevation. The soil is rocky, sandy loam. The vineyard was originally planted in 2008.

"Elegant layers of rose oil, strawberry schmear and dusty mints are attractive on the nose of this bottling. The palate tightens up around fresh flavors of strawberry, pomegranate and light herb."
93 points, James Suckling
"Bright and savory with redcurrants, sour cherries, red licorice and orange peel. Medium-bodied and sleek, but structured and compact. Fresh and crunchy red berries with hints of dried herb and citrus undertones. Drink or hold."
