2011 Clone 115 Pinot Noir
"More elegant and complex, with less richness and more focus, the 2011 Pinot Noir Clone 115 is loaded with complex underbrush, crushed flowers, forest floor and sweet red berry fruits. Medium-bodied and textured, with a firm, focused core, it opens up beautifully in the glass, so decant if drinking anytime soon. It will continue to evolve gracefully through 2021. Drink now-2021." ~ Wine Advocate
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.
The Clone 115 has attractive aromas of raspberry, rose petal and sandalwood. The palate has focused flavors of black cherry, cranberry and vanilla backed up with a streak of minerality and brisk acidity. Enjoy!
