About This Wine:
He dreamed of crafting high-quality Pinot Noir from meticulously farmed vineyards in respected American Viticultural Areas. Coby and his wife, Katie Noonan, met through working at neighboring wineries and instantly found that they shared a combined passion for good wines — especially Pinot Noir.
With Coby’s experience in the cellar and Katie’s expertise in marketing, they founded El Lugar Wines and began chasing their dream. One of the Pinot Noir sources they’ve come to love is the Hilliard Bruce Vineyard in the Sta. Rita Hills district of California’s Central Coast.
The 2018 vintage from that vineyard is a stunning wine with an array of fruit aromas that seem to leap out of the glass. Those fruit impressions are accented by toasted vanilla bean and shaved cedar notes, and the luscious flavors cascade to a long-lasting finish — a winemaker’s dream come true.
