Au Bon Climat Pinot Noir Isabelle Morgan 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

92 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): Dark red cherry, plum, spices, menthol and leather meld together in the 2011 Pinot Noir Isabelle, Au Bon Climat's selection of the best barrels in the cellar. The 2011 is all about juiciness, texture and layers of flavor. Two years in 100% new French oak adds volume and breadth in this impeccable, harmonious Pinot. Drink: 2014-2021. (Jul 2014)

Named after Jim Clendenen's daughter. This wine is a CELLAR SELECTION of the best barrels of single vineyard of Pinot Noirs in the Au Bon Climat cellar from that particular vintage. Our premiere Pinot. - Winery
