2012 Pinot Noir, Santa Lucia Highlands
Cranberry, chalk, slate and red licorice lead the aroma profiles of this appellation cuvee from winemaker Stephen Dooley (whose middle name is Ross), one of the only winemakers based in the city of San Luis Obispo. On the palate, the pleasing red licorice continues, boosted with oregano and graphite. - M.K.
