Pinot Noir 'Garys Vineyard', Capiaux

Garys’ Vineyard is a highly acclaimed and storied site owned by two Garys. It was planted in the mid ’90’s to Pisoni clones in Santa Lucia Highlands sandy loam soil. With my first vintage of Garys’ in 1999, I could sense its old-world beginnings and knew this vineyard could rival some of the great Burgundy “grand cru” sites.

Dark appearance with a youthful purple hue and solid core set the stage for this years Garys’ Pinot Noir. Striking aromas of currant, cherry liquer and earth jump from the glass. Flavors of blackberry, smoked meats and espresso meld into a creamy finish. Nicely balanced acids and tannins from this vineyard consistently make this a wine of great nuance and finesse.
