Clark & Telephone Vineyard, located near the corner of Clark Avenue and Telephone Road in the Santa Maria Valley, is cooled by wind and fog that snakes in from the Pacific Ocean along a channel of the Santa Maria River.
Established in 1972, the Clark & Telephone Vineyard was planted "own root" to the Martini clone. This heirloom clone of Pinot Noir, one of the first to grace the California coastlands, has become something of a lost treasure.
Rich scarlet color, with aromas of brown spice, caramel and soft tea. The velvety palate offers flavors of bright red fruit, warm spices and sweet oak, supported by firm acidity and refined tannins.
