This second vintage of Lucy’s Pico Blanco from Monterey County continues its impressive winemaking style. Comprised of 85% Pinot Gris and 15% Pinot Blanc, this is both elegant and exciting; an enticing white wine for people who don’t like white wines. It offers crisp acidity, fresh flavors of lemon zest, lime kefir, quince, white peach and Asian pear, lithe honeysuckle, fresh baked bread, light resin and a stony minerality. The Lucy label is from the Pisoni brothers and the Pisoni family has been producing wine from Monterey since the early 1970s.
This is a serious Rose made from Pinot Noir grapes in California. Very pale orange/pink in color, clear and bright. The nose has light strawberries and some watermelon. A nice, slightly oily texture. The palate has nice strawberries. Very clean. Refreshing. Nice finish. This drinks well on its own and would work well with foods. Grilled salmon would be a nice choice.
This is a very nice wine. It is made in a reticent style and more elegant that bombastic. Very pale pink in color, almost no color at tall. The nose is nice with watermelon rind, cherries, and strawberries. Slightly oily texture. Plenty of watermelon on the palate. Moderate finish. This is nice on its own but will work better with lighter foods. A fruit salad would work well. Drink over the next year.
