From the Winemaker:

Garys’ Vineyard is a partnership between Gary Franscioni and Gary Pisoni. Both families’ roots in the Santa Lucia Highlands are quite deep. Their families have farmed this area for over 100 years. Recognizing the region’s potential for premium wine grapes, the Garys turned their focus to viticulture and partnered together on the Garys’ Vineyard in 1997. A star was born. Both Gary Franscioni and Gary Pisoni exude passion; for adventure, for family and friends, for grape growing, and for wine. They have managed to combine all of these by pouring their enthusiasm and energy into the Garys’ Vineyard. Our first vintage of Garys’ Vineyard was in 2005. Well known for bold, unique wines, this vineyard lies in the middle reach of the Santa Lucia Highlands appellation in Monterey County. Our blend is comprised exclusively of the Pisoni Clone.

Aromatics:

Classic black cherry, mint, iron and smoked earth combined with minerality.

On the palate:

Beautiful palate with a medium to full body and perfectly integrated acidity. An elegant, lengthy finish.

95 Points - Jeb Dunnuck

"The 2016 Pinot Noir Garys Vineyard offers more minerality and iron/meaty notes as well as classic black cherry fruits, mint, and smoked earth. It’s beautiful on the palate as well and has medium to full body, perfectly integrated acidity, and an elegant, lengthy personality. Drink it anytime over the coming decade."
