Description

"...scents of green tobacco, woodsmoke, bergamot and peppercorn over concentrated red cherries, rhubarb and cranberry with licorice hints. Medium-bodied, it opens in the mouth to floral notions with wonderfully ripe, concentrated, spiced fruit knit by grainy tannins and great freshness, finishing long and flavorful." ~ Wine Advocate 

"...pliant, open-knit and inviting, with lovely succulence and impeccable balance. The focus on a single clone is intriguing, but also results in a slightly more monotone wine relative to some of the other Pinots in the range. Bright red/purplish berry fruit, sweet spice and vanillin linger in this gorgeous Pinot from Fess Parker." ~ Antonio Galloni's Vinous

"This clonal study shows focused black-plum and raspberry aromas alongside rose petal. The palate is quite full, with pomegranate, plum and lively mint flavors, proving both tangy and herbal." ~ Wine Enthusiast 

The Clone 115 Pinot Noir has attractive aromas of red cherry, raspberry, red plum, chocolate and clove. The palate has focused flavors of black cherry, black raspberry, grilled sage, plum, vanilla and cinnamon backed up with a streak of minerality and brisk acidity.
