As we reflect back on the year behind us, we are thankful for so much. Generous rainfall — which is so essential to California and its farms — is plentiful. The vines are enjoying the reprieve from previous months of dry weather in the Santa Lucia Highlands, while the 2021 vintage is happily aging in barrel in the cellar.
In September, we were delighted to report that the 2019 Pisoni Estate Pinot Noir was honored by Jeb Dunnuck with a superb score and review. With an “elegant, pure, classic style” and “classic Pisoni minerality,” Dunnuck awarded a score of 97 points and declared the 2019 Estate Pinot Noir “another beautiful vintage for this cuvée.” A few short months later, we are thrilled to see it appear on this renowned critic’s list of Top 100 Wines of 2021.
The list is a selection of the top wines that were tasted over the past year and reviewed at JebDunnuck.com. The selection is based on a combination of overall quality, price, availability, and a little bit of “Wow Factor,” and was made by scrolling through thousands of reviews and painstakingly cutting the list to one hundred wines. We are elated to have this outstanding vintage included.
Cheers to the New Year. We are excited to share more with you in 2022.
