The Hilt Old Guard Pinot Noir 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

95 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous: "Another compelling wine, the 2014 Pinot Noir Old Guard is weightless and gracious on the palate, with more aromatic lift and silkiness than the Vanguard. From a flavor perspective, the two wines aren't that different because Sanford & Benedict is at the heart of both. Instead, in 2014 the differences are mostly textural, with perhaps just a touch more finesse here. The 2014 is all Sanford & Benedict fruit, 82% Mt. Eden clone and 18% Gamay clone, done with 35% whole clusters and aged mostly in neutral oak." 09/16
