Winemaker's Notes

Produced in limited quantity of 810 cases, this wine is a blend of five Pinot Noir clones: 115, 2A, 667, 777, and Calera. It was barrel-aged for 12 months in 40% new French Oak barrels and 60% older French Oak barrels and then bottled aged for an additional 15 months.

This is an elegant wine with a bright fruit aroma, delicate ruby color, subtle berry flavors of raspberry and cherry, with a smooth lingering finish.
