3‑Clones Pinot Noir

$30.00 /750ML

Wine Description

Yet another hot growing season.  There were many more warm nights that year, as witnessed by the low malic acid levels at harvest.  These conditions tend to produce wines on the fruit-forward end of the spectrum.  This wine has prominent Bing cherry notes and plenty of red fruit character, but still retains our classic earthy, spicy aromas.  The tannins are quite supple for a hot vintage and balance nicely with the core acidity.

Entirely sourced from our original vines planted in 2000, the Dijon 777, Dijon 115, and Pommard Pinot noir clones go through separate fermentations and then are blended before bottling, making this wine a symphony of disctint flavors.

Tasting Notes

The 2018 3-Clones Pinot noir has initial aromas of brown sugar and cardamom that give way to a dense core of Bing cherry and red fruit flavors with cola undertones. Medium bodied with fine-grained tannins. Warm medium-long finish.

“A most interesting set of aromatics include earthy white mushrooms, red raspberries, violets and the nutty-honeyed qualities of a fresh-brewed cup of rooibos tea. The palate is just as interesting, with its sweet red cherry, citrus and donut peach combination. The wine's fine-grained tannins are joined by surprisingly brisk acidity. The three clones are Dijon 777, Dijon 115, and Pommard, all planted in 2000. -Michael Alberty”

“Notes of redcurrants and cranberries with dried flowers, nut shells and crushed stones. Juicy and crunchy on the palate, with medium body, tangy acidity and a fruity finish. Drink now. Screw cap.”
