2018 Hallberg Vineyard Dijon Clones Pinot Noir

2018 Hallberg Vineyard Dijon Clones Pinot Noir

Russian River Valley

Tasting Notes
Bright red summer strawberries and layers of cherry compote introduce this offering from the beautiful Hallberg vineyard. Tones of toasted cedar, black tea, dried mushrooms, and forest floor compliment the fresh fruit aromas. Lively and energizing, the palate is sharp and focused, with balanced acidity highlighting the full spectrum of flavors from the first sip to the last.
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. 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.
