Clone 4 Pinot Noir, also known as Pommard, is celebrated for its depth and ageability. This singular clone produces aromas and flavors of ripe cherry, strawberry, cinnamon and sweet vanilla with an underlying earthiness and a hint of dried orange peel. The texture is silky and carries through the long finish.
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 vs. Empire, 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 4 Pinot Noir first came to life in our original Tepusquet Vineyard and these old vines now produce some of our most enchanting fruit.
