This complex wine is composed of four different clones of estate-grown Pinot Noir grapes, each contributing its own distinctive characteristic into the final blend. It was aged in French oak barrels including 20% new oak for 9 months. Cap punch-downs during fermentation ensured gentle extraction while timely rack and returns ensured sufficient oxygenation to improve the fruit forwardness of this wine.
