With two iconic Vineyards to choose from, it would have been easy to create two exceptional vineyard designates, but that was never our intent. We wanted to create a world-class wine showcasing the complexity of Pinot Noir. The wine from Chenoweth Vineyard was made strictly with the Pommard Clone, known for its lush dark cherry cola aroma, lush mid palate, and deep color. From Graham Family Vineyards was a co-fermentation of Clones 667 & 828, bringing a lighter bright red fruit aroma, elegance, and mouth watering acidity.
With complexity, balance, explosive aromatics, voluptuous palate, and persistent acidity, this wine has it all. The bright bing cherry nose invites you to explore this wine more deeply. The palate is rich, yet elegant, with essence of dark red fruit and an earthy spice. A mouth-watering acidity on the finish leaves you wanting more and more. Enjoy now and for many years to come.
