Profile


TASTING NOTES

By nose: Toasted oak, plum compote and cardamom. By mouth: Black berry, plum with soft, but supportive tannins. Calls for grilled lamb chops on a summer night.


VINEYARD NOTES

This is a blend of four parcels on the estate, layering the fruit of three varied Pinot Noir clones. The unifying factor is our Gold Ridge soils, which gives depth and complexity. The yields in 2017 were sadly on the low side. Total production shy of 17,000 cases, compared with an average of 24,000 cases. The vintage will also be remembered for the October wildfires.


WINEMAKER NOTES

Clone 828 brings the hearty ripeness, Clone 13 sprinkles in the forest floor and savory qualities, while Pommard 5 layers in the silky texture and roundness.
