2005 Pisoni Vineyard Pinot Noir

Gary Pisoni and his family have never wavered in their belief that Pinot Noir is the greatest red varietal on the planet and that the slopes of the Santa Lucia Highlands in the cool northern climes of California’s Monterey County are the best place to grow Pinot Noir. His family’s intense obsession with growing the world’s best Pinot Noir shows in every bottle from their unique vineyard.

Full bodied richness and fruit flavors of plum and black cherry dominate our Pisoni Vineyard Pinot Noir. The forward fruit is complemented by old world characteristics of earth, loam, and dried leaf. The long velvety finish of this wines shows hints of mocha and chocolate. A firm backbone of acidity ensures that this wine will age gracefully for ten years or more. 

TASTING NOTES:

Dark red color. This wine is all about cherries. With the cool vintage of 2005, the Pisoni Pinot Noir showcases some of the most intense cherry aromas and flavors. As this tightly wound, power-house wine unravels all of its subtleties, there are hints of eucalyptus, strawberries, and black pepper. With the rich and silky tannins, paired with crisp acidity this wine should age well for up to 10 years
