2019 ROAR Pinot Noir, Sierra Mar Vineyard, Santa Lucia Highlands   

The 2017 Sierra Mar Pinot bursts forth with blackberry jam, black cherry, leather and spice. Rich and complex, the wine gains bright accents of plum, skin and forest, and as it opens, tobacco leaf, dark, brambly berry, hints of vanilla, and a thread of shale course through the palate entwined with a light touch of oak and bright spice.
