We’re happy to report that our 2017 Pisoni Estate Chardonnay and our 2017 Pisoni Estate Pinot Noir have been honored with superlative reviews by Jeb Dunnuck. “Rich, concentrated” and beautifully “layered,” the wine critic opines of our Chardonnay, calling it “a magical wine” with a “great, great finish…. that will stand toe-to-toe with anything out there.” The “purity and elegance” of our Pinot noir make it an excellent example of this vintage, he continues. “California Pinot Noir doesn’t get much better.”
As to the red, the 2017 Pinot Noir is a great example of this vineyard, as well as the vintage. Lots of cassis, smoked earth, flowers and ground herb notes define the bouquet. Medium to full-bodied, it has beautiful purity and elegance as well as ample mid-palate depth and concentration. California Pinot Noir doesn’t get much better, and this is capable of evolving for over a decade.
A wine that only goes out to the mailing list, the 2017 Chardonnay from the Pisoni Estate is another magical wine form this family-run estate that will stand toe to toe with anything out there. Terrific notes of apple blossoms, Meyer lemons, orange zest, white flowers, and a liquid rock-like minerality all emerge from the glass. Rich, concentrated, yet elegant and incredibly layered, it has good acidity and a great, great finish. Drink it any time over the coming decade.
