For the past 25 years, we’ve carefully cultivated our estate vineyards in a handful of Carneros’ best locations.  Twelve separate clonal selections planted to a wide variety of soil types to promote a complex range of Pinot Noir expression. For this blend, our winemakers selected the following special selections of Pinot noir: Swan (68%), Dijon 115 (24%), Dijon 667 (5%), and Pommard (3%).  

2009 was simply the harvest of the decade.  Near perfect conditions at bloom allowed a modest set, followed by a mild summer growing season devoid of any heat spikes.  The fall rains held off until mid-October which allowed just enough time for the grapes to be picked at maximum maturity.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2009 Famous Gate Pinot Noir offers a richly layered and complex nose of black tea, tobacco, anise, and a wisp of smoke along with dusty plum, candied cherry, and black raspberry. Upon tasting the supple matrix of tannins is balanced by pitch perfect acidity. The concentration is notable, buts its power never threatens the harmony of delicate fruit. A Pinot Noir such as this can be enjoyed now or cellared for an even greater reward in the future.
