Winemaking Notes

Our 2019 Clone 114 Pinot Noir has notes of delicious brambly dark berry fruit compote, ripe plum, oak, baking spice, cigar box and a touch of clove. The rich, supple mouthfeel is smooth and oily, balanced with plum and spicy oak flavors and the tannins are slightly chewy on the finish, worthy of aging a few years.

Vineyard Notes
Our Clone 114 Pinot Noir comes from our Jane’s Vineyard in a neighborhood called the Santa Rosa Plains in the heart of the Russian River Valley. The vine rows are intentionally oriented north and south so the clusters receive excellent exposure on both sides. Warm days allow the fruit to ripen while the cool nights allow the vines to retain acidity, making the Russian River Valley a world class winegrowing region.
Production Notes
WINEMAKING We hand-picked this block of Pinot Noir Clone 114 and filled small tanks with the destemmed fruit. After 15 days on the skins, the juice was transferred to French and Hungarian oak barrels. Native yeast fermentation followed by malolactic fermentation imbued the wine with a great deal of complexity as did the barrels which were hand selected for their heightened character and balance. After blind tasting, only the best barrels were blended to create the finished wine.
