Winery Notes: “Our approach to Pinot Noir is very similar to Chardonnay but we have two clones. For the last 25 years we've been working on selecting which of the two we preferred and we finally came to the conclusion that the answer was both. We've been planting our newer Pinot Noir Vineyards with a field mix of the two selections of late, giving deference to neither and laying the groundwork for our next generation of Pinot Noirs to be as transparent to site, and their relativity to each other, as are our Chardonnays. Both selections are marked by very low yields, small berries, great concentration and color in the fruit and a propensity to hold their natural acids during ripening.”
