2018 Pommard Clone Pinot Noir
"There are aromas of warm, oaky spice, dark plum and anise on the nose of this bottling, but the seashore-like accents are most intriguing, including nori wrap and charred driftwood. Baked plum and mulberry flavors pair with that smoky wood flavor on the palate." ~ Wine Enthusiast
"...another beautiful wine in this lineup. Lots of floral notes as well as raspberries, mulberries, and incense emerge from the glass. Medium to full-bodied, with a core of sweet fruit and a great finish, it's a more forward, sweetly fruited wine in the lineup yet stays pure and beautifully balanced." ~ Jeb Dunnuck
Our clonal selection of Pinot Noirs are made 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 - 14 barrels of each wine - and delivers some of our finest expressions of Pinot Noir.
The Pommard Clone is a darker, more brooding example of Pinot Noir. You will find cherry, forest floor, floral and even slightly smokey notes on the nose. The palate delivers nice structure with cherry, strawberry, cinnamon and dried herb flavors.
