    January 2019

    The 2017 Pinot Noir Legan Vineyard is a gorgeous Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir. Vertical in feel, with tremendous fruit richness, the 2017 is so gorgeous today. All the elements come together effortlessly in this super-expressive, inviting Pinot Noir. In 2017, the Legan is especially sensual and silky. Bright red cherry, raspberry, mint, wild flowers and blood orange add brightness to this pretty, nuanced Pinot Noir from Arnot-Roberts. I would give it a few years in bottle to fully come together, but readers will have a hard time exercising that kind of discipline!
