2008 Pisoni Estate Pinot Noir Magnum OWC - 98 pts!

This land has an identity.   These mountains, this soil, the rocks, the quality of air and the wind. All these traits contribute to a character unique to this very part of the earth. Our goal as a family is to work with nature, through farming and crafting wines, and to preserve this identity in wines that express this very site.

The personality of this land was first recognized when Gary Pisoni began planting grapes in 1982 — some of the very first in this region. Each year we learn more about the characteristics of our vineyards, farming and winemaking to steadily improve the sustainability of what we do, and the wines we strive to create.

Robert Parker 98 RP - An absolutely stunning fireworks display of aromatics emerges when the nose gets close to the glass of this dense ruby/purple-colored wine. Foresty notes, spring flowers, black raspberry, black currants, sweet cherry, and sassafras all jump from the glass. Extremely layered, velvety-textured, and opulent, with a finish that goes on for 50 seconds, this full-bodied wine has extraordinary concentration, purity, and “gravitas.” It is a sensational wine that should drink well for up to a decade. Bravo! Gary Pisoni, and of course, his vineyard, are respectively the rock star and the grand cru site of the Santa Lucia Highlands. Pisoni has hit a home run with this modern-day reference to how prodigious California Pinot Noir from cool-climate areas can be. Sadly, there are only 600 cases, but that is much more than most vignerons of grand cru vineyards in Burgundy produce. About 15% stems were used in the upbringing, and the amount of new oak, according to Gary, was around 65 or perhaps 70%.
