2014 Clone 828 Pinot Noir
Single Vineyard, Single Clone Star
Clone 828 is a sub-variety of Pinot Noir and grown in very limited quantities in Sebastopol. It delivers many layers, leading with red fruits like pomegranate and fresh cranberry.There is a distinct minerality on the mid-palate, of the earth, but not earthy like our Russian River wines. Of our current wines, this is showing the “youngest”, still concentrated and tight, but brilliant in spices and fruit. It promises to be a blockbuster, though maintaining the feminine charm for which Pinot Noir is touted. 140 cases.
