Poppy Pinot Noir, Santa Lucia Highlands, 2009

The Santa Lucia Highlands appellation leans down from the coastal pacific mountains towards the Monterey Bay. The region's cool climate and limestone soils make it one of the remarkable vineyard sites in California. Our Pinot Noir vineyard is one of the oldest on the mountain. The grapes consistently produce a rich and complex wine with berry aromas and a velvety texture. Serve this wine with a slow roasted lamb shank, filet mignon or savory carnitas. Alc. 13.5% by vol. Produced & bottled by Poppy, King City, California.
