This special bottling of Estate grown Pinot Noir was selected from barrels destined for our “Heritage Reserve” bottling, and aged for a total of 16 months in French oak barrels. These barrels best represent the unique characteristics of the Schug Estate vineyard. The weighty meatiness and smokiness of the Pommard clones planted in Block 8 and 9 is enhanced by the fruity exuberance of the Dijon 115 clone in Block 10, and UCD 13 clone in Block 4. A bouquet reminiscent of roses, ripe cherries and spice lead to rich flavors of black cherry and plum, all finishing with hints of tobacco and spicy new oak. This wine is perfect for the collector's cellar, and will continue to age gracefully for up to 10 years.
