Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Our Pommard Clone pinot noir provides a hedonistic sip of savory, smoky black cherry, black berry, and spiced dark plum fruit with pungent black pepper and sweet vanilla spice on a richly dense palate with velvety tannins. These intensely fruity, savory and toasty flavors linger on the deliciously long finish.

100% Pinot Noir
Vineyard Notes
2014 started with worrisome, drought-like conditions, and many feared a parched, dry spring as in 2013. Refreshingly, spring rains came in February and into March providing water for the soils and filling reservoirs. The wine growing season will most be remembered for the August 24th earthquake that occurred just as harvest was commencing in the Napa Valley. The vines were not affected and harvest finished early, bringing in beautiful, healthy fruit. Our Pommard Clone pinot noir grapes for this wine were picked between August 27th and September 2nd.
Winemaker Notes
The clusters were harvested in the cool of the morning to retain fruity, delicate flavors. A portion of the grapes was destemmed before being transferred to fermenters as whole berries to heighten fruitiness. The remaining portion was fermented as whole clusters (with stems) to add a bit of spice, structure and subtle flesh to the texture. During that time the cap of skins was gently pumped over, ensuring a soft, silky mouthfeel. Several days of cold soak prior to fermentation and extended maceration afterwards, added up to a total of 17 days of wine to skin contact to achieve rich, fully developed flavors. The new wine matured in oak barrels (38% new) for 9 months before release.
