2021 Lucienne Lone Oak Vineyard Pinot Noir
Our 146-acre certified sustainable Lone Oak Vineyard sits at the northern end of the Santa Lucia Highlands where it is cooled by ocean breezes from the Monterey Bay. Morning fog lingers here while the wind picks up in the afternoon, leading to a long, cool growing season that allows grapes to slowly develop flavor and concentration. With gentle, east-facing slopes and elevations between 180 and 500 feet, the vineyard’s ancient alluvial soils assure excellent drainage. Only 20 acres of Lone Oak are devoted to Pinot Noir, which is silky and complex, displaying multiple layers of aromatics as it opens.
