Surh Luchtel Garys' Vineyard Pinot Noir 2006
|Region||California, Central Coast, Santa Lucia Highlands|
Ripe, assertive, intense, concentrated are the words used described this wine, atypical for Pinot Noir but typical for Garys' Vineyard Pinot Noir. The 2006 Garys' Vineyard Pinot Noir falls somewhere in between the cool 2005 vintage and the hot 2004 vintage. It has the hallmark Garys' Vineyard wild berry, baked cherry and gaminess but is more restrained than in the past. Aged 4 months longer than usual in French oak, 67% new, it will take a bit longer than usual to show its full potential.
