The Silacci Vineyard is the northernmost vineyard planted in the Santa Lucia Highlands. Most of the vineyard faces east to southeast, capturing a good amount of sun on what is a very cool site. Half of the 22 acre vineyard, and where our block lies, is planted to the famous “Pisoni clone”. If you’re lucky, you may run across the Pisoni patriarch—Gary, larger than life and alarmingly friendly or his distant cousin, Robert “Sacci” Silacci who could not be a nicer guy. The wine here is medium-bodied compared to the heavier Garys’ and the huge Pisoni, more aromatic with higher acidity and dried herb tones with red plum fruit on the palate.
On the 2010:
"A very focused and intense rendering from this site that reminds me of the 2008 which was my favorite wine of that vintage." - Emmanuel Kemiji
