2015 Black Kite Pinot Noir, Sierra Mar Vineyard, Santa Lucia Highlands   

A stellar example of both varietal and vintage, our 2016 Sierra Mar Vineyard Pinot Noir makes an immediate impression with enticing aromatics that hint at the mouth-filling flavor to follow. A heady mix of red fruits and sweet florals gains Bing cherry, raspberry and enticing tropical notes once the wine opens up. The generous, concentrated palate is buoyed by bright acidity and firm tannins suggesting this might be one of our most age-worthy wines yet. Enjoy upon release or cellar for up to 15 years. WWW .
