"Aromas of plum, light red currant, red apple, hibiscus and smoked meat are both pretty and rustic on the nose. The palate offers suave and rich cherry flavors alongside a spicy star anise kick.”

The Caraccioli property is an expansive, 124 acre, expertly farmed estate vineyard in the Santa Lucia Highlands in the shadow of the Santa Lucia Mountain range. This unique microclimate moderated by the ocean breezes that flow through the valley and the mountains just behind, is a glorious area for growing world-class pinot noir.

We secured this incredible parcel at a mine-numbing price, offering it for just $19 a bottle! Pure, aromatic, zesty and long, this is simply astonishing. Pinot drinkers need to heed the call and back up the truck on this one. What can we say? Tasty, strawberry and cherry and rhubarb, with sweet strawberries kicking in on the back. Fresh and spicy, it’s simply irresistible -- be careful! We have 30 cases to sell to you and will likely sell out in hours, if not minutes. Grab it quick!
