Lucas & Lewellen Walk-On Wish Pinot Noir
Santa Maria Valley, California
Louis Lucas '63
This clone 667 pinot noir was aged sur lie in French oak barrels which brought forth the natural flavors of bright red fruit, with smooth tannins, and a lingering finish. The grapes for this wine were grown in our cool climate Goodchild vineyard within the Santa Maria Valley AVA. Along both sides of the acclaimed Foxen Wine Trail, these vineyards consistently produce prize-winning Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes. The soils vary from clay and gravel river deposits to hillside and hilltop sites reminiscent of the great vineyards of Burgundy. The ruins of the historic Foxen adobe still stand guard over these vineyards.
