Three clonal selections: Swan (87%), Dijon 115 (9%), and Pommard UCD-5 (4%) were gently de-stemmed and cold soaked for five days to extract color and aromatics.
The 2016 Famous Gate Pinot Noir opens with enticing aromas of red berries, baked fig, and black tea. On the palate, there is sweet cherry, enriched by layers of pomegranate, dark chocolate, and baking spices.
