Pinot Noir

Varietal Compositon : 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Merlot, 12% Malbec, 8% Syrah, and 2% Petit Verdot.
Fermentation : Our Claret follows the Bordelaise model of blending different Bordeaux varietals. Malolactic fermentation is completed in barrel, and the blend is assembled early so it is “elevated” as the finished wine.
Aging : Our 2016 Claret rested on its lees twelve months in French & American oak barrels,
only 13% new, with monthly bâtonnage to coat the tannins, producing a luscious,
cushioned mouthfeel. This wine was lightly fined with egg whites and bottled without
filtration in February 2018.
