Tasting Notes

This appellation blend offers aromas of candied red cherry, strawberry and mint on the nose. The palate packs fresh, zesty and ripe red fruit with a complex array of herbs and spices, from tarragon and chamomile to marjoram, sage and aniseed. Fruit-driven and wrapped in leather and sagebrush, this blend melds elements from all the vineyards. This approachable Pinot integrates the best of north and south within the Santa Lucia Highlands.

About Roar Winery

Gary and Rosella Franscioni started ROAR Wines with the knowledge that Pinot Noir had a shining future in the Santa Lucia Highlands, and a dream that their farming know-how would translate amazing grapes into amazing wines. Rosella’s Vineyard was planted on their home ranch in 1996, followed by Garys’ Vineyard in 1997 in partnership with the Pisoni family. The first vintage of ROAR was released in 2001, made from these two vineyards. From the beginning, Gary and Rosella’s mission was to make wines that they themselves would love to drink. Their approach was met with critical recognition almost immediately. Two more beautiful vineyards were planted about a decade later: Sierra Mar and Soberanes. Today, Gary and his sons continue to improve and innovate in the vineyards and winery to produce the best quality their land can create.

ROAR is run by the Gary Franscioni family, and those that feel as close as family. From the winery to the vineyard rows, the long tenures of those involved are a real testament to our culture and commitment to long-term quality. We are a small, highly-efficient team who take care and consideration into each action we take. Our greatest asset is our teamwork and dedication to grow premium grapes and wines, from soil to bottle.
