Winemaker's Notes

An exciting new venture for Clos Pegase, Pinot Noir offers, perhaps, our greatest challenge yet. Starting with just a few producing acres in Mitsuko's Vineyard, we have been quietly vinifying a few hundred cases of Pinot Noir since 1996. We were so encouraged by these initial experiments that we've expanded our vineyard plantings to more than 20 acres of the finest clones of Pinot we could lay our hands on.

The goal, as always at Clos Pegase, is to present these wines unfined and unfiltered with their full allocation of aromas and flavors left intact. A spray of cherry, licorice, strawberry and jam with svelte tannins and a lingering finish, this Pinot Noir will provide years of pleasure and improvement.

"...this outgoing Pinot Noir offers up big flavors filled up with cherries and sweet spice..."
