We began our clonal pinot noir program with the intent of isolating some of the very best individual lots in our cellar and capturing the nuances that each specific clone offers. This has remained a very small project - approximately twelve barrels of each wine - and delivers some of our finest expressions of pinot noir. You will find black cherry, blackberry, black tea, forest floor, star anise, vanilla and even baking spice notes on the nose. The palate delivers nice structure with flavors of black plum, currant, black cherry, strawberry, cranberry, baking spices, vanilla and grilled herbs. Enjoy!

Wine AdvocateCassis, spicy oak, dried flowers, sappy herbs and licorice all emerge from the 2014 Pinot Noir Pommard Clone, which is medium to full-bodied, pure, concentrated and rich, with a supple, polished, textured style on the palate. It's a terrific wine and should drink well for 4-6 years. Brought up in 50% new French oak, it shows the slightly darker, earthier style of the Pommard Clone.

Wine EnthusiastBoysenberry, black plum, condensed rose petal and cola touches show on the nose of this clonal selection, which offers very purple-seeming aromas. Ripe black cherry fruit leads the palate, followed by rounded vanilla notes, over a backdrop of thyme, bay leaf and graphite.
