2022 Overlook Pinot Noir




Wine Society

About the Wine

For this wonderful expression of Pinot Noir, we selected three different growing areas – the Escolle Vineyard in the Northern Santa Lucia Highlands, the Paraiso Springs Vineyard at the Southern end of the Santa Lucia Highlands, and Danny’s Vineyard in the cooler Western Chualar Canyon. Expertly crafted by winemaker Greg Stach, this representation of Pinot Noir is sure to please both the novice and aficionado. A wine with a sense of place – the benches of the Santa Lucia Highlands and the western edge of the Chualar Canyon. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
