A wine of great poise amd balance featuring the vaunted "Dijon 667" clonal selection. Juicy notes of fresh strawberry, raspberry, blackberry and a hint of blueberry open the palate.The theme of the 2015 vintage is characterized by a very precise juiciness and quite defined, well polished tannins. The precocious nature of the vintage allows these wines to be enjoyed a very short time after bottling. This particular example provides a rich and satisfying new world style of Pinot with poise and balance.
The pure fruit expression of the "Dijon 667" clone is one of its undeniable hallmarks, and in this example showcases a mixture of red and black berries with fresh strawberry, raspberry and even a hint of blueberry. Three other selections complete the blend, the “Dijon 777” (18%), “Pommard UCD-5” (9.5%), and “Swan” (6.5%). The Swan is usually reserved for our Famous Gate bottling, but in this instance offers a subtle note of tobacco leaf. The resulting blend presents a complex array of fruits complemented by notes of red rose, cedar, and forest floor.
