2014 CAMBRIA CLONE 4 PINOT NOIR

WINEMAKING AND VITICULTURE

The Clone 4 grapes were sourced from vines planted with grafting material from the original Clone 4 established on our property in 1970. The vines are well-established and consistently produce classic Pommard style wines with a distinctive expression unique to the Santa Maria Valley. After harvest, the wine underwent a seven day cold soak (pre-fermentation) before being aged in 100% French oak barrels. The 2014 vintage was near ideal yet again, characterized by a dry winter and a warmer than average spring & summer. While harvest began relatively early, moderate temperatures and minimal rain allowed for exceptional grapes with ample ripeness, fl¬avor and texture.

TASTING NOTES

“Complex yet elegant, the Clone 4 Pinot Noir is brimming with beautiful red fruit characteristics, with hints of blueberry fruit found in the background. Spice notes of cinnamon and cardamom compliment the slight earthy characters while, balanced tannins add structure to the wine and make for a nice long ¬finish.”-Denise Shurtleff, Winemaker
