Silver - 2018 Harvest Challege
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. Dijon clones from the Burgundy region of France (clones 667 and 777) were introduced. 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.
Handcrafted from a single vineyard with aromas of a bouquet of flowers, baking spices and black cherry. A soft and silky texture on the palate, it tastes like fresh berry jam on warm toast with a long finish of chocolate pie covered with whipped cream.
Varietal Composition: 100% Pinot Noir - Clone 667 and 777
