"This 2021 ‘Gary’s Vineyard’ is sourced from Pisoni clonal selection Pinot Noir vines. The Pinot Noir comes from a rocky site that is roughly one mile from the Rosella’s Vineyard. The dark fruit profile is very evident in this wine. Wild blackberry and black cherry tones mark the nose alongside wet gravel accents. The palate is smooth and soft with a voluptuous texture. Drink 2024-2040."

    About This Wine

    Garys’ Vineyard has been an excellent source of Pinot Noir and features the Pisoni Selection of Pinot Noir, a suitcase clone from Burgundy. Two sections from varying elevations provide nuanced differences that provide a more dynamic palate profile and layered flavors. The 2021 Garys’ opens with floral notes and sage with lingering dark fruit. The palate has laser-like focus upon the first sip then gradually expands with flavors of seared tomato, crushed gravel, and roasted cranberry. With brilliant acidity and expressive tannins, the finish is beautifully knit and persistent. This would benefit from decanting and will be one that can be kept in the cellar for some years to come.
