Description

"...starts off with some baked cherry and mulberry fruits as well as some savory, earthy notes, yet it blossoms with time in the glass to show more floral and pretty nuances. Impeccably balanced on the palate, this medium-bodied, clean, lively, lengthy Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir will keep for 5-7 years." ~ 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.
