We set aside the finest barrel lots of our Carneros Pinot Noir for extended aging to create our "Heritage Reserve" Pinot Noir. Each vineyard lot was chosen to express its own individuality in harmony with the final blend. This vintage was sourced almost entirely from one of our longest grower relationships, Dave Iund, whose vineyard sits on the eastern edge of Carneros. We highlight both old and new plantings in the blend, with 42 year-old Martini clone Pinot from Iunds block 12 being paired with the youthful fruit of recently planted Dijon clones in blocks 2 and 3. A bouquet reminiscent of roses, warm cherries and Kirsch liqueur leads to rich flavors of black cherry, cranberry, and hints of lavender, 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.
