Vineyard

Pinot Noir Clone 828 has a few aliases among wine cognescenti, including gumboot, faux and upright. The latter refers to the way the vine grows straight up as do the clusters until they grow heavy enough to drop down. The block where it is grown is a small hill with southern exposure and the soils are well-draining haire clay loam. The resulting wine is masculine and concentrated—what some might call a Cabernet-lover’s Pinot Noir.

Tasting Notes

This wine calls out for meat with strong flavor accents, such as prime rib with horseradish sauce, fennel sausage and Saratoga lamb chops seasoned with oregano.
