2016 Pisoni Pisoni Estate Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir

14.1% alc., $80. · Moderately dark garnet color in the glass. Shy, but pleasant aromas of black grape juice, blackberry reduction and root beer. Mid-weight plus in density, with an array of energetic dark fruits supported by a firm but sensible tannic backbone. The fruit really floods the mouth with goodness and the sleek mouthfeel satisfies. An amazingly long finish makes this wine stand out from the pack. Score: 94. Reviewed September 19, 2021
