Generous aromas of plum, lavender and dried meat are both ripe and snappy, rounded and spicy on the nose of this bottling of clone 943. The palate is fresh and vivid with floral flavors of violet and lavender as well as char and cracked pepper and lively acidity.
- Matt Kettmann (Wine Enthusiast)
Our 100% Pinot Noir Clone 943 greets you with aromas of red fruit, fresh herbs and black pepper. The palate is light to medium-bodied upon entry with complex flavors of cherry, red plum, rose petals, and sage, finishing with allspice, and loamy earth undertones.
