This is the second release of a classic combination. Anchoring the blend is the Pommard clone at 50% of the blend. It marries well with the Dijon 667 (35%) which adds depth and structure. Rounding out the blend is Wadenswill (15%) which adds notes of ripe exotic fruit.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
This wine exudes youthful exuberance and energy. Leaping from the glass are notes of cedar, sassafras, and orange zest. Perhaps most intriguing is the elusive scent of wild fennel. The palate has a mouthwatering, juicy quality, with black raspberry at the forefront closely followed by baked plums and cherry pie. The blend enjoyed a full fifteen months of barrel age; 40% newly coopered French oak.
Vineyard Notes
The growing season was characterized by a warmer than average summer. However, we were fortunate not to experience any heat spikes. The net affect was an early start to harvest with surprisingly well developed tannins. Yields were modest, especially in pinot noir, but there was a slight uptick from the previous vintage (15 had notoriously low yields).
