The fruit for our 2009 Pinot Noir was grown from three estate vineyard blocks, planted to a mix of Dijon and Pommard clones. The location of each of these blocks was chosen because they are the coldest sites on High Serenity Ranch. The low gap in the ridge above the vineyard allows cooled lake air from Clear Lake to spill into High Valley producing Pinot Noir with more intense varietal character, better color extraction and excellent acid retention.
Opulent aromatics of black cherry cola and warm cinnamon buttered toast lead to ripe pomegranate and a rich, creamy sensation on the palate. The wine's deliciousness, like the finish, never seems to end.
