2014 Pinot Noir ~ Santa Lucia Highlands 1.5L Etched Magnum
More than any other varietal, Pinot Noir is an expression of terroir. Terroir is a word bandied about in the wine world meaning the unique characteristics of a particular locale – essentially the taste of the place. And no other varietal reﬂects its sense of place more than the temperamental Pinot Noir grape. At Scheid Vineyards, we craft up to seven diﬀerent bottled Pinots per vintage and our Pinot portfolio wouldn’t be complete without an SLH oﬀering. Pinots from the Santa Lucia Highlands lean towards a darker and denser style than their Burgundian cousins. They tend to have a little bit of tannin, a lot of dark fruit, and great depth of body and color. Our 2014 SLH bottling is a complex blend of Pinot Noir clones 777 and Calera. Intoxicating aromas of dark cherry and brown sugar mingle with dark fruit ﬂavors, toasty oak and hints of truﬄes. Epitomizing the voluptuous side of Pinot Noir, the rich and silky texture lead into a long, layered ﬁnish. Each vintage, we design and etch one-of-a-kind artwork for this collectable release. Most importantly, magnums are oh-so-great for sharing and entertaining—we suggest you enjoy with family and friends!
