Mer Soleil Pinot Noir 2017, Santa Lucia Highlands
Grapes for the Mer Soleil Pinot Noir 2017 come from vineyards in the southern and middle sections of the Santa Lucia Highlands, whose diversity enables them to create a more layered wine. With the alluring color of dark plum, this wine features scents of ripe cherries with cocoa, pomace, blueberry, toasted wood and a soft, powdery whiff of old-fashioned lipstick. The palate is all about texture – entry is soft, with a round, complete quality. Flavors of cherry cobbler mingle with cola notes and hints of anise. Tannins are structured yet extremely fine, providing a lush, lingering mouth feel. On the finish, a wisp of acidity adds balance and freshness, a reminder of this wine’s origins in a cool, coastal region of California.
