This wine is made with a selection of Dijon Clones, primarily 113, 114 and 115, using fruit from several diiferent locations on the Estate that are all part of the vineyard designated program. The result is a more masculine style of Pinot Noir, powerful and complex with firm structure, but smooth tannins. Descriptors typically include floral tones, cocoa, red cherries and spice. A good candidate for aging, it can also be enjoyed young with strongly flavored foods, red meats and game.
