Estate Single Clone/ Single Vineyard Pinot Noir 3-Pack
2018 Calera Clone Pinot Noir | This dark and juicy single clone Pinot Noir explodes with intense aromas of wild strawberry and notes of cherry cola, slowly opening to spices of cinnamon and Christmas spices. The palate fills with juicy flavors of cranberry and boysenberry, as dark chocolate and earthy richness hits the mid-palate. One of nine clones of Pinot Noir planted at Anndel Gap Vineyard, this bottling shows the dance between the coolness of the site and its ability to achieve precision and grace.
2018 Clone 667 Pinot Noir | Ripe raspberry, juicy cranberry, with hints of mint and pine needle mingle with a rich, powerfully compacted mouthfeel. Fine grained powdery tannins with nicely integrated oak make for elegant length with notes of crandberry & blood orange rind on the finish. The more heodonsitic and exuberant of the clonal siblings in this year's selection, the 667 shows precision in the attack and persistence in length of the finish.
2018 Gap's Crown Pinot Noir | Our second release of Gap’s Crown Pinot Noir sourced from very small and very select vineyard blocks in the prized Petaluma Gap. Ruby red-purple. The wine displays concentrated aromatics that burst from the glass, offering cherry cobbler, raspberry, and violets centered on a forest floor base note. The palate is broad and deep, with soft tannins creating elegant length and texture. Flavors are bright and lively of berry compote, freshly smashed cherries, juicy strawberry and lingering hints of five-spice and orange peel. Buoyed by energetic yet interwoven natural acids and threaded with very fine-grained tannins. Presents a lingering, long lasting finish.
