Foley Estate Pinot Noir Clone 667 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

Site-specific conditions and classical winemaking techniques have fashioned a tremendous Pinot Noir. Low yielding, Block 5C was the first block harvest in 2004 (August 23). Upfront aromas of blueberry jam, black cherry and pomegranate mingle with notes of earth, vanilla and rhubarb. Moderate in tannin, the body is elegant, broad and fleshy with a long, smooth finish.

Foley Estates Vineyard & Winery at Rancho Santa Rosa is the realization of vintner Bill Foley's dream to produce world class Chardonnay and Pinot Noir in Santa Barbara County. A historic parcel located in the Sta. (Santa) Rita Hills region of the Santa Ynez Valley, Rancho Santa Rosa was formerly a thoroughbred horse ranch. In 1998, the 460-acre property was purchased and planted to 230 acres of vineyard. Devoted to Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Syrah, the vineyard has been subdivided into 59 micro-blocks with each being farmed, harvested and vinified separately. The handsome stables have been refurbished to house the winery, with tremendous detail going into the planning of a modern facility, while honoring age-old winemaking tradition. Read less
