I love the 2014 Sierra Mar Vineyard Pinot Noir! As a newer vineyard sometimes it takes a while for us to figure out the best representation of a single vineyard wine. After several very good Sierra Mar Pinot Noirs, this 2014 finally approaches all that I believe this vineyard can be. Perhaps most notable is that this wine is a good bit more Clone 23 Pinot Noir than any of our previous Sierra Mar releases. In fact, it is 80% Clone 23, 10% Clone 777, and 10% Pommard Clone. We aged it in barrel for 6 months before we came up with the final blend. At that point we racked the appropriate barrels together and sent this wine back to oak until January of 2016. This is longer than we normally age our Sierra Mar Vineyard Pinot Noir, but we believed that this wine had the concentration and structure to truly be a superstar.
