2014 Clone 05 Pinot Noir   

The Clone 05 Pinot Noir is produced from several blocks of Pommard clone Pinot Noir, planted in our Charles Vineyard (just behind our Boonville winery). We ripen it just a touch more than the rest of our core line-up, with 40-60% new oak, depending upon the vintage. The Clone 05 always shows gorgeous, red fruit alongside earthy notes.

The 2014 vintage was an excellent one, with a very long, dry growing season. It produced wines with beautiful fruit, acidity, and structure. This wine can be enjoyed now, or cellared for years to come.
