ESCOLLE VINEYARD PINOT NOIR
SANTA LUCIA HIGHLANDS
 
 

Escolle Vineyard is fast becoming one of the SLH’s top Crus, sitting next to the famed Garys’ Vineyard higher up on the bench it makes for spectacular Pinot Noir like this one with its fine sense of delicacy now and future potential, showing a dark fruit profile and loads of energy. This light to medium bodied wine takes a moment to unwind, but it does so with beautiful layering and finesse with black raspberry, cranberry, cherry and blood orange fruits as well as a touch of earth, brambly spices, cinnamon, and mineral tones. The potential for the exceptional pure 2018 Escolle Pinot looks great, and while rewarding now, it will evolve nicely in the bottle and look for more floral dimension to emerge on the nose and a fuller palate to develop over the next few years.
