Three clonal selections: Swan (87%), Dijon 115 (9%), and Pommard UCD-5 (4%) were gently destemmed and cold soaked for five days to extract color and aromatics.
The 2015 Famous Gate Pinot Noir opens with enticing aromas of anise, savory herbs, black tea, and hot brick. On the palate, we find sweet cherry and cocoa powder enriched by layers of pomegranate, grilled fig, and a wisp of cigar smoke. With its silky texture and mouthwatering acidity, this wine invites enjoyment now and promises further depth and complexity with added cellaring. Enjoy our finest expression of authentic estate grown Carneros terroir.
