WINE REVIEW: 2017 Lucienne Pinot Noir ‘Lone Oak Vineyard’, Santa Lucia Highlands, CA ($50)
Updated: Dec 4, 2019
by Andrew Chalk
Appearance: Ruby with an almost opaque core and translucent meniscus.
Nose: Spicy, tomato leaf, red fruit, forest floor, coconut;
Palate: Bright forward fruit. Long earthy finish. Chewy tannins with a solid backbone.
This is a brand from Hahn Estate, made from grapes grown on their estate. It is alluring to drink now, either as a quaffing wine or with pork, game, or veal. Recommended.
