2017 Longoria Wines Fe Ciega Vineyard Pinot Noir Sta Rita Hills USA
Floral tones of rose petal and lavender kick off the nose on this bottling from Rick Longoria's estate vineyard, followed by waves of concentrated black plum and mace. The palate pairs boysenberry with black plum, lavender with lilac and licorice with nutmeg in a complex display.

Longoria's 2017 Pinot Noir Fe Ciega Vineyard is bright, punchy and beautifully focused, in other words very much in the restrained style that is such a signature of this site. Sweet floral and spice notes add complexity to the red/purplish berry fruit. I especially like the energy and vibrancy here.
