2017 Estate Pinot Noir Calera Clone

2017 Estate Pinot Noir Calera Clone

This dark and juicy single clone Pinot Noir explodes with intense aromas of wild strawberry and mulberry, slowly opening to spices of cinnamon stick, clove and cocoa powder. The palate fills with juicy flavors of cranberry and boysenberry, as dark chocolate and earthy richness hits the mid-palate to be powerfully finished with shaved milk chocolate and dried lavender. One of nine clones of Pinot Noir planted at Anndel Gap Vineyard, we are great admirers of this selections ability to toe the line between decadence and grace.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
The Annadel Gap Vineyard is a special place. Located between Mt. Hood and the Sonoma Mountains, our site is characterized by thick morning fog and strong afternoon winds. Alluvial, glacial, and sedimentary influences create a wide array of soil types. Ideal growing conditions, varied soils, and our minimal-impact farming methods yield precise, balanced fruit.
Winemaker Notes
Hand-harvest at night, the fruit was sorted then fermented with 22% whole clusters. 6 days cold soak, gentle punch downs 1-3 times daily, 19 days on the skins, gently basket pressed to French oak barrels
