2015 Pinot Noir Estate

Winemaker's Notes

Our Estate grown Pinot Noir is a test vineyard, located just off the Russian River on Limerick Lane. This .75 acre vineyard was established in 2008 after grafting existing vines. Two clones were introduced, 667 and 777, (Dijon clones from the Burgundy region of France). This small parcel has been duplicated at a second vineyard site, four acres of Pinot Noir clone 667, 777, 115, and 23, all planted in 2009. Enjoy!!!

Tasting Notes

The color is like a rare ruby lit by candlelight. The nose has the scent a warm mocha topped with whipped cream, sweet wood, hot mulled wine and a little smoke. A soft and silky texture on the palate, it tastes like a fresh picked strawberry, baking spices and tea leaves. This wine has a long lingering finish of raspberry jam that makes you want to go back for more.
