Often noted for their deep color and intensity, wines from Pisoni Vineyards offer complex flavors and layers of undulating texture. The rocky mountain soil and the long, cool growing season provide the fundamental character of the wine, and the tannin and acid structure contribute to the age-worthiness.
Dark and dramatic. This is an enormous wine, superextracted in cherry, blackberry and mocha flavors, but totally dry. Almost Syrah-like, except for the silky tannins. Not particularly nuanced now, but the gamble is on ageability.
Gary Pisoni exudes passion—for adventure, for family and friends, for grape growing, for wine. The Burgundian-crazy founder and visionary of Pisoni Vineyards & Winery oversees all viticultural and winemaking activities. For over 20 years, this maverick has produced Pinot Noir grapes for premium California vintners, gaining recognition for his uncompromised practices and exceptional fruit. He and his two sons presented the first release of Pisoni Estate Pinot Noir in 1998 and introduced a sister label, Lucia, in 2000.
