(From 2013 Vintage) Clone 4 produces aromas and flavors of ripe grapes, cherries, pomegranates, cinnamon and sweet vanilla. The underlying earthy character is present and a silky texture in the mouth flows into a long vanilla and oak spice finish
The 1998 Julia's Pinot Noir has a stunning plum, cherry nose…almost floral…with hints of leather and spice. Sweet cherry flavors coat the palate and finish with a long, lingering finish.
Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines(From 2005 Vintage) Sweet oak smelling of roasted vanilla beans with a hint of creme caramel joins with ripe cherries and whispers of raspberry in this wine's medium-volume and fairly open aromas, and that same sense of openness shows up in the wine's fairly rounded, slightly soft-edged texture and flavors. On the whole, it is well-balanced and ready to enjoy today.
