2017 Pommard Clonal Series Bottle

2017 Pommard Clonal Series

Each year we put the spotlight on one of the twelve different Pinot Noir clones grown at Domaine Carneros by bottling it separately. We first bottled the Pommard clone (aka UCD 5) separately in 2009, and since then we have kept our eye on this consistent performer. This wine has a fascinating appearance, it presents brilliant clarity despite the fact that it never underwent any racking, fining or filtration.

Tasting Notes

This wine has a fascinating appearance, it presents brilliant clarity despite the fact that it never underwent any racking, fining or filtration. Aromatically, the nose is primarily red fruit oriented presenting crushed raspberry, wild currant, and cranberry along with a wisp of spice. The palate continues the theme of red fruits with additional layers of cherry, cooked berry, freshly turned earth, and black tea. This is a wine that delivers a lot of delicate nuanced flavors in a low alcohol package. Perhaps the most alluring feature is the juicy entry with fine grained tannins kept in motion by the fresh acidity. 605 cases produced, available only at the winery or through our exclusive wine club.
