Winemaker's Notes

Our 2017 Spire is a barrel selection of higher elevation vines, where the depth of soil moderates the vines vigor and concentrates tannin, color and flavors into a truly stellar wine. Predominantly Dijon clone 115 with a few barrels of Calera, the Spire is laden with rose oil, black cherry, dark plum and allspice. A quintessential Los Carneros Pinot Noir, with a magical blend of earthy spice and dark fruit.
