Description

"Medium ruby-purple colored...gives a nose of red currants and black cherries with suggestions of damp soil, charcoal and forest floor. The palate has a great structure of firm, ripe, fine-grained tannins and lively acid supporting the muscular black and red fruits, finishing long and earthy." ~ Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"One of the more Burgundian-styled Pinot Noirs in the lineup is the 2015 Pinot Noir Pommard Clone...has a classic bouquet of red (and some black fruits), leafy herbs, leather and spice-cabinet, with a soft, forward, slightly short finish. Drink it over the coming 4-6 years." ~ Jeb Dunnuck

"...dark, sensual and inviting, with terrific creaminess and depth to the flavors. As is the case with all of these Pinots, the Pommard Clone plays in the riper end of the spectrum, and yet all the elements are nicely balanced. Super-ripe red cherry, kirsch and plum notes abound." ~ Antonio Galloni's Vinous
