2017 Hallberg Vineyard Dijon Clones Pinot Noir

Russian River Valley

Tasting Notes
Classic Pinot Noir aromas of ripe strawberries, cherries, and cranberry emanate from the glass. These fresh fruit components are carefully balanced with a concert of dried porcini mushrooms, truffles, and leather. Bright and fresh upon entry, the palate is a perfect balance of fruit and earthiness. Silky fine grain tannins provide a subtle firmness throughout, while the beautiful fruit and natural acidity lead the way to an exceptionally long finish.
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 fl oral aromatics.
