Lucienne Doctor's Vineyard Pinot Noir 2014
|Appellation||Santa Lucia Highlands|
Wine EnthusiastSultry black cherry, clove and crushed graphite show on the nose of this single-vineyard study from Winemaker Paul Clifton. That baked black-cherry power arises strongly on the palate as well, with lots of allspice and star anise. The wine finishes crisp, wiping the palate clean.
Wine SpectatorAn assertive style, with a dusty mix of savory berry, cedar and black tea providing a firm tannic backbone. Should gain with time in the bottle. Drink now through 2023. 922 cases made.
