2016 Luli Sauvignon Blanc

The 2016 Sauvignon Blanc is a juicy, racy and deliciously quaffable white with classic grape fruit and citrus aromatics, hints of grassy herbs and a great finish. It's a fabulous value and will be versatile on the dinner table and with tapas. This cuvee from the valley floor of Arroyo Seco and is fermented and aged on lees in older barrels.

2015 Luli Syrah

The 220-case 2015 Syrah comes from the Highlands Ranch vineyard (it's not designated as a single vineyard however) and sees a touch of whole cluster. Aged in a mix of new and neutral, barrels, its deep purple color is followed by terrific notes of blueberries, cracked pepper, raspberries and hints of tapenade. Elegant, layered and beautifully pure, it's a knockout Syrah that has real character and depth.

2015 Luli Chardonnay

Brought up all in neutral barrel (this is the first vintage where it's all in barrel) and from a handful of vineyards in the Santa Lucia Highlands, the 2015 Chardonnay offers impressive, exotic notes of orange blossom, hints of pineapple, and melon in a lively, pure and layered, style. It's a smoking value to drink over the coming year.

2015 Luli Pinot Noir

Due to the scarcity of quality Pinot Noir at reasonable prices, the Pisonis couldn’t make a Pinot Noir under the Luli label until 2008. Made in the same building as the Pisoni wines, the 2015 Pinot Noir sees a small amount of whole cluster, native ferments and was brought up in third fill barrels. It leads with its fruit and offers impressive strawberry, cranberry, violet, earth and spice in its medium-bodied, elegant, fruit-forward personality. At 24 bucks, it’s a total steal and overdelivers.

2015 Luli Pinot Noir Highlands Ranch

A much smaller production cuvee that’s made from a strict selection, the 160-case 2015 Pinot Noir Highlands Ranch comes from a site towards the mid to southern part of the Santa Lucia Highlands Appellation. A barrel selection that was completely destemmed and aged in neutral barrels, it offers beautiful raspberry, violets and floral aromatics, medium-bodied richness, a seamless, elegant texture and a great finish.

2015 Luli Pinot Noir Monte Linda

The smallest production cuvee and from a site near Doctors vineyard, in the southern part of the appellation and at a higher elevation, the 2015 Pinot Noir Monte Linda is a deeper ruby colored and offers a much more masculine, peppery, earthy bouquet. Black cherry, forest floor, hints of damp earth and crushed flowers all flow to a beautifully pure, polished, elegant Pinot Noir that tastes like a Premier Cru from Gevrey-Chambertin. There’s only 90 cases produced.
