Winemaker's Notes

(From 2011 Vintage) Our 2011 Napa Valley Pinot Noir ‘Dijon Clones’ is grown at the Green Island Vineyard in the very cool south end of Napa. This wine is enticingly fragrant with a rich nose of red cherry, rhubarb, vanilla bean and orange rind. Once again, the richest in body of our Pinot Noirs, it offers up forward flavors of black cherry fruit, plum, and orange peel. Absolutely captivating!

    A decadent and rich Pinot Noir this wine has a very fragrant nose of rose, perfume, black cherry and berries. There are dense flavors of pomegranate, concentrated cherry and strawberry, some spice, and a gentle dose of oak. It is a powerful Pinot!
