Pey-Lucia 2006 Pinot Noir Santa Lucia Highlands

Johnathan and Susan Pey named this wine Frisquet, which is French for “very cool,” referring to the Santa Lucia Vineyard’s cool climate location, which is ideal for Pinot Noir. Deep, saturated red in color, the Pey-Lucia 2006 Frisquet Pinot Noir is bright, lively and engaging on the nose with sumptuous aromas of dark berries, Asian spices, rose petals, and musky underbrush. Full fruit flavors of blackberry, cherry and black raspberry come forward on the palate, while spice and hints of oak add structure and create savory, silky texture and flavor. This velvety Pinot sees elegance and persistence on the delicious, long finish. The Pinot Report says, “This is a terrific Pinot, well worthy of your attention.” [+]
