2011 Luli Pinot Noir
$21.95 (retail) Wine Club pricing reflected in receipt
It’s back, and we know you’ll love the new vintage of Luli Pinot Noir as much as we do. A companion label to the venerable Pisoni stable of the Santa Lucia Highlands, the genesis of this wine stems from a partnership of the family and Master Sommelier Sara Floyd.
Expect nothing but huge fruit with dense, ripe flavors from winemaker Jeff Pisoni. His brother, Mark, is responsible for viticulture and Patriarch Gary. . .well, he is the heart and soul of the venture as well as the godfather of pinot in California.
Details from the Winery: “Luli Pinot Noir captures the best of Santa Lucia Highlands. This wine has bright aromatics, lots of fruit and floral notes, and a very full bodied, velvety texture.
“Grapes for this wine are sourced from different vineyards in the Santa Lucia Highlands. Sourcing from diverse locations within the appellation adds to the wines flavor profile. In the winery the grapes undergo a long cold soak for maximum flavor extraction and a subsequent fermentation by native yeast. The wine is aged for eleven months in French oak barrels before being bottled, without fining or filtration. A very low percentage of new oak barrels are used in order to maintain the bright vineyard flavors.”
