"An excellent wine, this 2019 Pommard Clone bottling is full-bodied, well balanced, and intensely flavored (cherry, blueberry, toasty oak, herbs), with a long finish."
Download Wine Fact Sheet
The Pommard clone fruit provides tantalizing aromatics of bright raspberry and sweet cherry that layers with subtle spices and creamy mocha. A smooth entry flows into a mid-palate of supple tannins and rich oak notes wrapped around lovely dark lingering flavors—young, fresh-picked cherry, raspberry, pomegranate, and wild berries mingled with a touch of floral. A dash of cedar and anise appears and lingers with hints of minerality in the long finish. A plush wine with an elegance that turns heads and quickly empties glasses.
