Description

"Winemaker Blair Fox loves this single-clone bottling, and for good reason. It’s intensely dark in color but not overextracted, with soil, eucalyptus, black plum and baking spice aromas. Rounded strawberry and raspberry fruit shows on the medium-bodied palate, with star anise and white pepper accents." ~ Wine Enthusiast

"From a single clone planted in the Rancho Las Hermanas Vineyard in the Sta. Rite Hills, the 2014 Pinot Noir Clone 115 has lots of sweet oak in its black raspberry, cassis, spice and licorice-scented bouquet. This gives way to a medium plus bodied Pinot Noir that has terrific purity, notable freshness and a great finish. Like the other releases here, it is a ripe, classic Cali Pinot to drink over the coming 4-5 years." ~ Wine Advocate
