Wine Spectator, Kim Marcus
"Big and rich, with unctuous dark fruit and spice flavors bound by rich acidity and lithe tannins. This is creamy on the midpalate, with a plush finish offering chocolate accents and sanguine hints. Drink now through 2027."

93 Points | Wine Enthusiast, Matt Kettmann
"Focused aromas of black cherry, cola spice, green herb and a hint of smoke show on the nose of this bottling. Baked raspberry and cherry flavors are spiced by more smoke as well as pepper and roasted fennel touches."

2019 WALT Sierra Mar Pinot Noir Bottle Shot2019 WALT Sierra Mar Pinot Noir Bottle Shot

Central Coast AVA
Roughly 250 miles along the coastline of California
from Santa Barbara County to San Francisco County

Sierra Mar
Translates to “mountain sea” in English, a fitting name
for a site that represents the best of extreme mountain
coastal terroir.

High-Altitude Vineyard
Site with decomposed granite and gravelly loam soils

Deep garnet in color. Alluring aromas of black cherry, dark plum and dried flowers lift from the glass. Focused and well-structured, the palate offers plenty of plush fruit and spice. The wine is underscored with lively acidity and leaves an exquisite impression of mountain chaparral just after a rain.

Sierra Mar vineyard is owned by Gary and Rosella Franscioni, famed pioneers of the Santa Lucia Highlands. This incredible vineyard site reflects the best of the appellation. The vineyard produces rich, lush, unctuous fruit that is balanced by the natural acidity of the site.

Vintage NotesThe 2019 vintage began with a wet spring bringing three inches of rain in May. In response to the late rains our vineyards received diligent attention to control vigorous vine growth. A long Indian summer followed with mild weather, allowing the fruit to ripen at slow, even place. The long picking windows bore fruit with beautiful freshness at optimal ripeness. The resulting wines are exceptionally elegant.
