New Release: 2012 Lafond Vineyard Pinot Noir

2012-lafond-vineyard-pinot-noir-bottle-glass-web

Winemaker’s Comments: The wine is made up from the best barrels of the vintage.

28.5% Martin Ray Clone, 28.5% Pommard Clone, 14% Clone 113, 14% Clone 115 and 15% Clone 177.

Each year the clonal composition changes as each year the wine from these clones may vary. This year Clone 113, which we had not used in this blend for some time, contributed with its aromatic and red fruit quality to the blend.
