2021 Garys' Pinot Noir
Garys’ Vineyard, located on a wide alluvial mesa in the heart of the Santa Lucia Highlands, is named after grape-growing partners Gary Pisoni and Gary Franscioni. Garys’ Vineyard is known for spicy aromatics and rich berry flavors, and has subsequently gained reputation for producing some of California’s most sought-after wines.
The grapes were hand picked and sorted in the vineyard, then sorted a second time at the winery. After fermentation, the wine was transferred into 50% new French oak for 11 months of aging.
The 2021 Garys’ Pinot Noir is rich yet energetic. Aromas of black plum, smoked meat, and sassafrass are supported on the palate by dark fruits and toasty oak. This wine features a medium body with elegant tannins — an exquisite match for duck confit or prime rib.
