2019 Westwood Pinot Noir, Annadel Gap, Sonoma Valley, Clone 667
Clone 667 is one of the prestigious Dijon clones brought back to California from the Côte-d’Or in Burgundy, France. This vine stock forms compact clusters which generate deeper color and more layers of tannins than other Pinot Noirs previously grown in California. Our 2019 Clone 667 Pinot Noir provides the palate with an explosion of ripe cherries, strawberries, exotic spices, and blood orange from this layered wine that displays no hard edges, with ultra-fine tannin and great persistence in the finish. Savor every sip tonight through 2032+.

The 2019 Pinot Noir 667 Clone Annadel Gap Vineyard is another savory, earthy, beautifully fruited wine from this team. Fermented with 10% whole clusters and aged 18 months in 45% new French oak, it’s medium to full-bodied, has classic Pinot Noir spice and assorted red and black fresh, a kiss of chocolaty oak, and a great finish.
