Lucas & Lewellen’s 2007 Pinot Noir is a stylish, elegant representation from two estate vineyards within the Santa Barbara County AVA. The Goodchild and Los Alamos Vineyards are cool climate vineyards, sloping gently toward the Santa Ynez River where the wine grape varietals being produced are among the best in the region. Santa Barbara is known as a top producer of California Pinot Noir, and it’s because of wines like Lucas & Lewellen’s 2007 Pinot that delivers on all facets – including great value. This wine has all the characteristics we love about Pinots…from its signature bright red fruit, savory herbs, and minerality, to its refined palate with naturally crisp acidity and excellent structure. Enjoy this Pinot Noir with grilled salmon, fettuccini carbonara, and roasted pork tenderloin…or as an aperitif on its own! A Gold Medal Special Selection, the Lucas & Lewellen 2007 Pinot Noir is a pre-release offered exclusively to our members and has not yet been sent out for review (but judging by the winery’s consistent success in previous vintages, we know this one is a winner as well!).
