WINEMAKERS’ NOTES

Our Club Exclusive Pinot Noir features clone 828. 2018, with its almost perfect fall temperatures, was a vintage made for this clone. Aromas of fresh red fruits fill the glass, with a thread of herbal tea and mint hitting as you pull away. The palate is vibrant and opulent with a hint of spice. There’s a density to this Pinot Noir clone that is unlike others, which is why we love showcasing this fruit. 82 cases produced.

VINTAGE NOTES

The 2018 vintage was magic. Following the trend of the past several vintages, summer was warm, but nighttime temperatures remained cool, helping the fruit to hold its natural acidity. As harvest approached, temperatures cooled ever so slightly, creating perfect fruit ripening conditions. With no big rainstorms on the horizon, we never had an urgency to pick. Once we started picking fruit, the vintage was slow and consistent with perfect flavors and lab numbers. The 2018 vintage will produce fantastic wines.
