The Clone 23 Pinot Noir is a dark purple color. The aromas and flavors consist of blueberries, blackberries, spicy oak, and mocha. The Clone 23 has a firm, yet balanced tannin structure and the finish displays the dark berry fruit characters along with vanilla and sweet oak nuances.
We bottle our Clone Collection to highlight the individual characteristics and variations of a single grape clone. Similar to biting into a Honeycrisp apple vs. Granny Smith, bottling a single clone allows us to fully explore the nuances between flavor, texture, and aroma across different varieties of the very same grape. Clone 23 Pinot Noir shows a different side of the grape through barrel fermentation and aging — sultry, dark, and brooding.
Enjoy with lamb kebabs, seared filet mignon, or paella.
