(From 2009 Vintage) The flavors of the Lucero are bold, with black fruits, smoky spices and a little meatiness, all typical of the Syrah from the Kingston vineyard. Maybe a little reminiscent of Cote Rotie, or perhaps Cornas, but equally New World in style, with ripe fruits and soft tannins.
Wine & SpiritsRating: 92/100 - As reviewed by Wine & Spirits Magazine on 06/09. Grown on the clay and granite hills of lower Casablanca, in the coldest part of the valley, Lucero is spicy and herbal up front, then warmer in the minerally finish. Sharp acidity tones and extends the sweet cherry flavor. To drink over the next five years. Kingston Family Vyds.
