Black fruit, menthol, tobacco. The 2016 Siduri Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir is a red fruited wine with superb concentration and balance. Having only been bottled a few months ago, it is still a bit tight on the finish, but really opens up after being open for several hours. If you're going to drink this wine now, give it some air (or a good decanting) or let it sit in the cellar for a couple of years.

Bright ruby-red. Smoke-tinged dark berry and cherry aromas are complemented by suggestions of cola espresso and candied flowers. Nicely concentrated but lively as well offering sweet red and blue fruit flavors that are energized by building spiciness. Subtle tannins build on the persistent finish which leaves cola and floral notes behind.

The entry-level Santa Lucia Highlands cuvée is the 2016 Pinot Noir Santa Lucia Highlands, a mix of all the single vineyards, fermented with 15% stems. Black raspberries, blueberries, crushed flowers, and violet notes all emerge from this rich, textured, and fruit-forward effort. It's a powerful, textured, and ready to go. Drink it over the coming 5-6 years.

Deep aromas of black-plum sauce, dark rose petals, sugar plums and roasted pork show on the nose of this appellation blend by Adam Lee. Freshly cut plums, cherry pits, squeezed cranberries and cocoa show on the vivacious sip.
