Santa Lucia Highlands, Central Coast

Roar

Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir 2019

2019 vintage and the best I’ve tasted from non-estate Roar. Don’t even think about drinking this without at least a 4 hour decant. Came together on day 2 and was still singing on day 3. This is a roaring Pinot that pulls no punches. Gorgeous and well integrated. Ripe dark fruit flavor and nicely acidic. Cheers! — 15 days ago

Anaba Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir 2016

Quintessential Pinot Noir flavor. Probably let this one age a year or two too long, tannins faded, but still delicious. — 5 days ago

Sandlands

Santa Lucia Highlands Syrah 2018

The fruit for this wine come from the Soberanes vineyard which was planted in 2006 but already highly regarded. The vineyard is cared for by the Pisoni and Fanscioni families. Brought to Tasting Group and presented double-blind. The wine pours a deep purple color with a near opaque core. On the nose, the wine is slightly smokey with purple flowers, blue and black fruit, and wood. On the palate, blue fruits, olive brine and black pepper. Medium+ tannin and medium+ acid. The finish is long, dusty and earthy. Only one person called Central Coast Syrah with other guesses ranging from Northern Rhone to Cabernet Sauvignon to Malbec. While I found this to be really enjoyable, I think some time in the cellar will allow this to come together. Only 4 barrels produced. — a month ago
