‘Las Alturas' Spanish for 'the heights', a fitting name, this vineyard located on one of the highest grape-growing benches in the Santa Lucia Highlands AVA. 4th gen Winemaker Joseph J. Wagner from family with farming & winemaking roots in Napa since 1906. Met Joe several times. Deep Ruby (darkest Pinot I have come across). Nice berry and floral spice aromas. Rich cherry/plum flavors with oak, spice and vanilla. Long finish, bold ending with sweet oak notes. Nice! A Fav! — 18 days ago
Delicious and just starting to be drinkable. Lovely opulent fruit and a spine of gorgeous acidity. A touch of sweetness. Great, with loads of life ahead — 11 days ago

I don’t see this getting any better at this point. Some slight Brett that blew away after being open for a little bit. Fruit is still present with some secondary aromas and flavors on the nose and palate. — 9 days ago
