Oh how we love it when we unearth a wine that turns out to be a hidden gem! Lightpost is a relatively new winery which is really knocking it out of the park with their outstanding Pinot Noirs. This one from the San Luis Obispo county AVA has it all - fruit, earth, and spices - in perfect balance. Try it with salmon - what a great pairing!
FROM THE WINERY
This wine should remind you of walking through the forest after a spring rain. The initial impression on the nose is reminiscent of moss, leather, and forest floor, with notes of black cherry and vanilla unfolding afterward. The lip smacking acidity combined with the soft tannins make this an approachable yet exquisite wine.
Laetitia and Edna Ranch Vineyards:
The two very different vineyards complement each other so well due to their flavor profile. Laetitia vineyard is all about earthiness and forest floor while Edna Ranch brings flavors of black cherry, plum and cola.
About the Winemakers:
The ultra-premium wines of Lightpost Winery are the result of the hard work and dedication of winemakers Sofia Fedotova and Christian Roguenant. Sofia, a successful entrepreneur, has long been fascinated with wine and started the winery after receiving a winemaker certificate from UC Davis. Christian has won numerous awards for his wines. His Champagne was served in the 1984 Olympic games. He was a judge for over 100 International wine competitions. In 2017, Christian was voted by industry peers as the California Central Coast winemaker of the year.
