Winemaker's Notes

Clos LaChance's first Vineyard designated Pinot Noir is built to last. Its aromas greet you with powerful Bing cherry, raspberry and hints of blueberry fruit balanced with beautifully layered earth and wood components. Clove, cinnamon, vanilla and spice accents round out the aroma profile. In the mouth it is structured to age gracefully and complement a range of foods. The strong acid backbone provides a perfect platform for the powerful, mouth-filling tannins. Smoke, tobacco and earth tones follow flavors of cherry and raspberry. This wine will stand up to spit-roasted duck, rosemary pork tenderloin and salmon dishes. This is a wine that drinks beautifully now and should age well into the next decade.
