"Medium to deep ruby-purple colored, the 2015 Pinot Noir Clos Pepe Vineyard has chocolate covered cherries, baking spice and sautéed herbs notes over a core of mulberries, red currant jelly and wild blueberries. Full-bodied, rich, ripe and spicy in the mouth, it has lovely plush tannins and just enough freshness framing the gregarious fruit, finishing long."

Wine Facts

The 2015 growing season in Anderson Valley was characterized by early bud break and a quick harvest. Early spring was unusually warm, however temperatures dropped in May causing ripening to slow, this allowed for flavor development and higher acidity. Yields were lower but the small berries and shatter that characterized this vintage resulted in impressive quality in the bottle.

Barrel Aging 10 Months in 50% New French Oak
