Irresistibly Californian in its sunny, fruit-forward style... Racy, exuberant and flat-out delicious, with aromas of red cherry and forest floor.  It hits the palate with heft, delivering loads of red cherry, raspberry, wild strawberry, sassafras, milk chocolate, vanilla and spice. 

Exceptional mouthfeel, with juiciness, lush tannins, great acidity, and a long layered finish.  Pommard Clone is a darker, more brooding example of Pinot Noir. You will find cherry, forest floor, floral and even slightly smokey notes on the nose.  The palate delivers nice structure with cherry, strawberry, cinnamon and dried herb.  This wine is ready to impress.

"...A rush of ripe red berry fruit, blood orange, mint, wild flowers and sweet French oak builds as this showy, flamboyant Pinot shows off its considerable charms. This is an especially alluring style. ~ Antonio Galloni's Vinous

"Seared black cherries, red and purple flowers, sage and vanilla make for a very compelling nose on this bottling of a single clone. The palate is fresh with snappy raspberry flavors and then broadens toward baking-spice flavors, proving quite lush and delicious." ~ Wine Enthusiast

"...pale to medium ruby color and nose of spiced cranberry sauce, stewed rhubarb, pepper, black berries, forest floor and tobacco leaf. Medium-bodied and silky with concentrated earthy fruits, it has grainy tannins and great juicy freshness, finishing long and earthy." ~ Wine Advocate

Aromas of white peach, lemon curd, fresh grapefruit and lime blossoms, with hints of sea spray and toasted almonds. The medium-bodied palate is wonderfully crisp and intense, with bags of citrus fruit and a satiny texture to counter all that vivacity.
