Description
 

Limited Release - One bottle per customer please.
Founded by growers Gary and Rosella Franscioni, ROAR Wines is a small, family-run producer of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from the elite vineyards of Santa Lucia Highlands. ROAR wines are made in collaboration with noted winemakers Ed Kurtzman and Adam Lee from fruit grown at the Franscioni’s own Rosella’s, Sierra Marr and Soberanes vineyards as well as the Gary’s and Pisoni Vineyards, which they co-own with the Pisoni family. Their goal with ROAR Wines is to make small lots of wine that are a pure reflection of the Santa Lucia Highlands and in particular the signature flavors of the vines. The name ROAR comes from the sound of the Monterey Bay winds that roar through their vineyards as well as the thrilling sound of a roaring crowd.

The juice of Roar "Sierra Mar" Pinot Noir spent 24-28 days on the skins before being pressed to 78% new French oak barrels for 11 months aging. The wine was racked once and bottled unfiltered and unrefined. This amazingly big, yet elegant Pinot Noir shows herbal sagebrush and violet notes with deep undertones of molasses and lifted hints of graphite. On the palate, violets and black fruit aromas are supported by a toasty-peppery undertone. As the palate opens, brighter red fruit and black licorice emerge, leading into the rich structured finish.
