I sourced three clones (115, 777 & Pommard 5) from Ross Ranch in Sebastopol, CA for my 05 Pinot Noir label. After de-stemming I re-introduced 40% stems for fermentation in order to get some “brushy” and “earthy” flavors. After 13 months in 40% new French oak, this Pinot Noir was bottled in Dec. of 2006. This beautiful light and finesse style wine will have a bouquet of pomagranite, wild sage, and earthy tones. On the palate you’ll find notes of cherry, cedar spice box, and mild tannins. 150 cases were massaged through the bottling line with the utmost TLC.
