2013 Pinot Noir Clone 667
Nestled in the Santa Rita Hills of the western Santa Ynez Valley, Lafond Vineyard is ideally situated to produce Pinot Noir exhibiting the unique and exotic flavor profile one finds in only a few regions of the world.

Specific areas within our vineyard exhibit elevated concentration and complexity due to soil type and exposure to the elements. We have planted eight distinct clones of Pinot Noir, each with subtle differences in flavor and aroma.

After several years of working with the eight Pinot Noir clones planted in Lafond Vineyard, Bruce has become very familiar with the attributes of each particular clone and uses them accordingly in each of the Pinot Noirs he makes.

Winemaker's comments: Clone 667, as grown in our vineyard, is a small berried light cluster. Usually the the lightest cluster weight of all the Pinot Noir clones we grow. The wine is dark, rich and well structured. One of the more tannic clones because of the high skin to juice ratio.
