2017 Roar Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir

SKU #1409466 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The pale to medium ruby colored 2017 Pinot Noir Santa Lucia Highlands gives up crushed black cherries, roasted cranberries and red berries with nuances of licorice, baking spices, forest floor and dried herbs. Medium-bodied and silky, that luscious fruit is well tempered with earthy accents in the mouth, with a soft, grainy, juicy frame and delicate finish. (EB) Inner quote mark (2/2020)

K&L Notes

The Franscioni family planted their first vineyard in the SLH in 1996 and planted the famous Gary's Vineyard a year later. The first wines under the Roar label debuted in 2001. Winery tasting note: "Chocolate, bright red fruits and dusty scrub brush aromas comes together in the 2017 Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir - a lovely example of what the region has to offer. Strawberry and cherry fill the palate, supported by leather and herbs. Through the finish, the fruit is full and bolstered by earthy, dark accents, and lifted by a bit of spice and savory olive."
