97pointsRoar 2016 Soberanes Vineyard Pinot Noir (Santa Lucia Highlands)

The Franscioni family is making some of the best wines on the Central Coast, as evidenced in this bottling, which shows tremendous concentration without being overripe or overextracted. Aromas of purple and red flowers meet with minty tarragon and pine needle on the nose, while the palate's black cherry and boysenberry flavors are lifted by touches of eucalyptus and pine needle.
