2015 Hallberg Vineyard Dijon Clones Pinot Noir

The Dijon Clones wine is a nice contrast to the bigger and bolder Hallberg blend.

2015 Hallberg Vineyard Dijon Clones Pinot Noir

Russian River Valley

Tasting Notes
The Hallberg Dijon Clones Pinot Noir is almost the antithesis of the Hallberg blend in that it flaunts spice, herbs and floral qualities before it unveils its gorgeous fruit characteristics. Complex aromas of cherry blossom, violets, cedar and bay leaves captivate the senses before the wine touches the palate. Layers of flavors unfold gradually, suggesting freshly harvested blackberries, button mushrooms, white pepper, and autumn herbs. This wine is a perfect partner to the Hallberg Pinot Noir: the Dijon Clones blend boasts savory spices and firm tannins, while the Hallberg offers succulent, juicy fruit on the palate.
Vineyard Notes
Named for its previous owners, the 100-acre Hallberg Vineyard is today owned and managed by wine industry veterans including vineyard manager Kirk Lokka. Nestled in the Green Valley sub-appellation, the site enjoys refreshing daytime breezes and cool nighttime temperatures. The strong marine influence means less severe daily temperature shifts so the vines never completely shut down, producing fruit with deep, dark color, great structure, silky tannins, darker fruit flavors and earthy characteristics. The Dijon clones selected for this blend come from three different blocks flanking the east and west sides of the Hallberg ranch. The 777 and 667 clones on the west side of the ranch contribute structure, spice and earthiness, while the 777 from the east side tends to offer dense, dark fruit flavors and lovely floral aromatics.
