100% Jespersen Ranch
100% Pinot Noir
Of the seven clones of Pinot Noir we grow one in particular rose to the top in an already impressive vintage. A higher amount of whole cluster additions to the ferment lent these two lots such stunning characteristics that we decided to bottle a small amount separately with a Reserve designation. After bottling our winemaking team held this wine back from release for a year and a half in order to ensure perfect integration of its components. Quiet but impressive aromatics of blueberry, black raspberry & cloves slowly wake up as you swirl this wine in your glass. At first sip it shows off the richer side of Pinot Noir with notes of blackberry, dried tea & earth balanced by a soft acidity. Its pedigree is obvious with a balance of structured spice, delicate fruit & floral notes.
