Jcr Vineyard Pinot Noir Santa Barbara County Pommard 5 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

92 points Jeb Dunnuck (Wine Advocate): A big step up, and my favorite in the lineup, the 100-case 2013 Pinot Noir Pommard 5 comes all from the Pommard clone and was fermented with 59% whole clusters. Aged 23 months in 25% new French oak (just one racking), it offers beautiful notes of black cherries, plums, forest floor and wild herbs in a medium-bodied, impeccably balanced and layered style. It's a rockin' Pinot Noir to drink over the coming 7-8 years, if not longer. Drink: 2016-2024. (Aug 2016)

Planted in the spring of 2008 with dormant vines, the five acres of pinot noir and half acre of chardonnay bore their first fruits in the 2010 vintage. At our vineyard, the weather is cooler and harsher than the nearby Sta. Rita Hills and the soil changes color and consistency over the vineyard's hillside from sand to clay to limestone. The vineyard rests on southeasterly facing slopes and is sheltered from the strong Pacific Coast winds by the surrounding hills. Please visit our website for more details.   Read less
