Description

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.

Wine Critic Reviews
"...is plump, juicy and super-expressive. A burst of dark red cherry, plum, spice, rose petal, incense and French oak are front and center. Exuberant and racy to the core, the 2020 is a winner. It is also one of the most forward, accessible wines in this range from Fess Parker." ~ Antonio Galloni's Vinous "Suavely integrated aromas of boysenberry, black cherry, scarlet rose petal and hints of violet make for a nose that’s both fresh and dark on this clonal selection. There’s a clear richness to the palate with ripe cherry and chai flavors, as well as a fuller bodied frame." ~ Wine Enthusiast "More candied cherry and mulberry fruits, violets, new leather, and sappy spring flower notes emerge from the 2020 Pinot Noir Pommard Clone, a medium-bodied, focused, lively effort that has ripe yet present tannins. This darker, floral, nicely structured Pinot Noir will keep for 7-8 years..." ~ Jeb Dunnuck
