2018 El Lugar "Rincon Vineyard" Arroyo Grande Valley Pinot Noir

SKU #1483482 94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Translucent ruby-red. Red berries, incense and candied flowers on the highly perfumed nose; a smoky mineral nuance builds in the glass. Sappy, appealingly sweet and penetrating on the palate, offering powerful cherry, black raspberry and vanilla flavors complemented by building spice and succulent herb nuances. Smooth and seamless in texture, finishing with solid cut, resonating spiciness and even tannins. 25% new French oak. (JR) Inner quote mark (1/2021)

93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Light tarragon and dried red-currant aromas show on the clean nose of this bottling. There’s a pure black-raspberry-jam kick to the sip, where wild mint, shiso and tarragon flavors make for an uplifting herbal experience. (MK) Inner quote mark (9/2020)

K&L Notes

From Rincon Vineyard planted in 1982 by Don Talley. Rincon vineyard features two hillsides rising from the valley floor with calcareous clay spoils that are perfect for Pinot Noir. The 2018 El Lugar bottling is a tiny production of just 5 barrels or 97 cases. A stunning, aromatic, cool-climate expression of the grape from on of my favorite vineyards on the Central Coast.
