As soon as the cork is popped, the 2019 Luli Pinot Noir showcases itself as a vibrant representation of the Santa Lucia Highlands. A shimmering medium ruby hue splashes into the glass as aromas of red cherry, tea leaf, and spiced plum fill the air. A true expression of the east-facing, windswept hillsides of this narrow AVA, this wine hits on all cylinders with bright flavors of macerated strawberry and raspberry, backed by more savory undertones of clove and wet earth. Added depth and complexity give this elegant Pinot Noir layer after layer, as it maintains fresh, lively acidity and soft, voluptuous tannin while coating the palate with enviable weight and concentration.
Looking at the three Pinot Noirs, the 2019 Pinot Noir Santa Lucia Highlands offers a beautiful array of mulled cherry and strawberry fruits to go with a medium-bodied, nicely textured, spicy, autumn leaf-scented Pinot Noir that has lots of up-front fruit and charm. It should be impressive for a solid 3-5 years or so, although there's no need to hold off.
