2017 Capiaux Pinot Noir "Pisoni Vineyard"
Santa Lucia Highlands, California
The winemaking style is a blend of classic and contemporary. All the wines are naturally fermented and unfined and unfiltered to preserve their innate flavors and aromas. Minimal amounts of new oak are used, usually 33%.
93 points, Antonio Galloni's Vinous.
"The 2017 Pinot Noir Pisoni is a pliant, succulent wine that shows the textural richness that is such a signature of this Santa Luca Highlands site. Mint, wildflowers and blood orange perk up the bright red berry fruit nicely. Pisoni Pinots can at times be a bit heavy, but Sean Capiaux deftly balances fruit intensity with vibrancy in this inviting, beautifully crafted Pinot."
