We call it “Le Ciel Serein” and it just might be the most picturesque ranch in Carneros. This site was selected for its rolling hills, diverse exposure, and exceptional soils. This edition offers notes of ripe plum, wild berries, delicate cigar spice, and carob nibs. This edition features the vaunted "Dijon 667" clone, which is widely planted in California and a particular favorite here in Carneros. The pure fruit expression of this clone is one of its undeniable hallmarks, and in this example showcases a mixture of red and black berries, and a burst of spicy boysenberry. 

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Hailing from our Le Ciel Serein vineyard and showcasing the expressive "Dijon 667" clone, this Pinot Noir is exceptionally vivid, silky and complex. The nose offers an evolving perfume of plum, bergamot, berry bramble and leather. The palate delivers a vibrant juiciness—a hallmark of the stellar 2018 vintage bursting with ripe plum, blackberry, and sassafras with a spiced cherry character riding long through the finish.
Vineyard Notes
We call it “Le Ciel Serein” and it just might be the most picturesque ranch in Carneros. This site was selected for its rolling hills, diverse exposure, and exceptional soils. Developed between 2002 and 2004 it has been carefully planted to a wide variety of pinot noir clones. Year after year it has proven itself by consistently delivering lush, aromatic, and exciting pinot noir.
Production Notes
This edition features the vaunted “Dijon 667” clone (93%) which is widely planted in California and a particular favorite here in Carneros. The pure fruit expression of this clone is one of its undeniable hallmarks, and in this example showcases a mixture of red and black berries, and a burst of spicy Boysenberry. Two other selections complete the blend, “Dijon 777” (6%), and “Pommard UCD-5” (1%). The resulting blend presents a complex array of fruit and spice accented with silky soft tannins.
