2018 Pommard Clonal Series Bottle

2018 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.

Tasting Notes

Aromatically, the nose opens with a burst of rose petal, baked strawberry, and an intriguing note of wet earth (think terroir). The palate delivers plum, anise, and tea leaves with a constant underpinning of ripe cherries. For those of you seeking a flavorful wine in a low alcohol package – your search has ended. This wine will benefit from aging in a temperature and humidity controlled environment.
