CLICK TO ENLARGE
The winery decided to try new wines by combining different clones to ascertain how they would blend and complement each other in this vintage. The Cardwell Hill Cellars Estate Pinot Noir Dijon Blocks 2014 is, as Dan describes, “...a combination of the wonderful bouquet produced by the 115 clone with the heavier more full-bodied 777 clone.” This is darker, sweeter, packed with kirsch leaning towards black fruit with impressive density. It has a palate coating dash of glycerin, and notes of clove, rainy forest aromas, and an outgoing, expressive demeanor.
