Our Santa Lucia Highland Pinot delivers a true representation of the Central Coast Pinot Noir grape; silky in texture and medium bodied with earthy aromas tinged with white pepper that set the stage for aromas and flavors of sour bing cherry, rhubarb and pomegranate.

Vineyard + Production
Located in the Santa Lucia Highlands of California’s central coast growing region, the Sarmento Vineyard is located on the benchlands of the Gabilan Mountains in Monterey, where the Pacific breezes boldly cross the range each afternoon to cool the vineyards, resulting in extended ripening over a long, moderate growing season.
