2020 Club Exclusive Heritage Clones Pinot Noir

2020 Club Exclusive Heritage Clones Pinot Noir

WINEMAKER’S NOTES

Our newest Club Exclusive Pinot Noir showcases the clonal diversity of the varietal planted across our estate vineyard. In 2017, our team planted a myriad of heritage clones with the intent to add complexity to our Dundee Hills and Reserve Pinot Noirs. However, these clones have quickly proven so distinct that these clones deserve their own blend. The aromatics leap out of the glass with sultry dark marionberry, juniper, and forest floor notes. The palate is bold with flavors of ferrous minerality, cacao, and blue fruit supported by densely rich tannins and a long finish. While just a baby, this wine shows hints to its aging longevity.

VINTAGE OVERVIEW 

The 2020 vintage will be one of the most memorable in our history. Rainfall during bloom coupled with cool temperatures set the stage for a historically low fruit set. The summer was delightfully moderate, and by the end of August, concentrated juice from tiny grape berries was intense with robust flavors. Harvest kicked off on August 28 and continued beautifully through Labor Day. Then, we experienced a freak windstorm that resulted in wildfires due to hot temperatures and arid conditions. Our team decided to continue with harvest to preserve our grapes. Meticulous sorting and attentive winemaking were essential to achieving our quality standards. We are fortunate to have some of the finest wine we can produce in bottle.
