Pinot noir

Pinot noir is a red wine grape variety of the species Vitis vinifera. The name may also refer to wines created predominantly from Pinot noir grapes. The name is derived from the French words for pine and black. The word pine alludes to the grape variety having tightly clustered, pine cone-shaped bunches of fruit.

  • 2019 Paul Lato “Matinee” Pinot Noir

    “Fresh vibrant color with medium intensity. The nose is gracefully perfumed with aromas of raspberry, strawberry, and delicate rose petals. This wine is elegant and flavorful, with a touch of spice and smooth tannin. Ready to drink now in its exuberant youth, but will improve over the next 5 to 7 years.” Winery Notes

  • 2017 Paul Lato “Lancelot” Pisoni Vineyard Pinot Noir

    “From a site located in the southern part of the Santa Lucia Highlands consisting of broken granite soils, the 2017 Pinot Noir Lancelot Pisoni Vineyard was all destemmed and spent 15 months in 70% new French oak. Ripe raspberries, strawberries, rose petals, sappy herbs, and crushed rock-like minerality all emerge from the glass, and it hits the palate with medium to full body, bright, integrated acidity, building tannins, and a great, great finish. Despite seeming to be the most seamless and elegant texturally, it has a wealth of building tannins, good acidity, and a tight, powerful, lengthy style that begs for another year or two in bottle.” 97 points, Jeb Dunnuck

  • 2017 Paul Lato “Seabiscuit” Zotovich Vineyard Pinot Noir

    “As with all Lato’s Pinot Noirs, the 2017 Pinot Noir Seabiscuit Zotovich Vineyard was completely destemmed, and this cuvée was brought up in 60% new French oak, which is on the higher end for Lato. This rich, medium to full-bodied, Burgundian styled effort is another wine that’s going to benefit from short-term cellaring yet offers a brilliant bouquet of black raspberries, ground herbs, earth, and underbrush notes, with just a hint of classic Sta. Rita Hills salinity and minerality. Showing more floral nuances with time in the glass, give bottles 2-3 years in the cellar and it will shine through 2032.” 95 points, Jeb Dunnuck
