The fruit that is used in this wine comes entirely from our estate vineyard. It was planted in 1985. Only our favorite barrels from this vineyard actually make it into the "Marjorie" bottling. Like our "Reserve" bottling, those selected barrels are left to age a bit longer in the oak. Because of relatively low plant density this vineyard is cropped even lower than our other low yielding estate vineyards at about 1.75 tons per acre. This bottling of Marjorie consists of the Pommard and Wadensville clones along with Dijon clones 777, 114, and 115 which were grafted onto the old rootstocks.
