Clone 777, Pinot Noir, Carneros, 2011
Clone 777 is grown in block 118, one of the best in our Carneros vineyard. This block is marked by its well-draining alluvial soils, which result in low-vigor vines with small berries. As a result the finished wine has intense color and fruit flavor as well as a remarkably rich mid-palate.
The intensity of Clone 777 is expressed in its earthy aromas. Tar, mushroom and bramble mix with a hint of miso. Santa Rosa plum, dark cherry and pluot flavors shine through this big Pinot with a long cocoa-infused finish.
Food and Wine Pairing
Pizza with a well-baked crust and flavorful toppings can be as easily paired with this wine as a chocolate mole sauce, coq au vin or anything with mushrooms.
