2019 Solomon Hills Vineyard Pommard Clone Pinot Noir
Santa Maria Valley
Every few vintages a clone will stand out to our winemaking team enough that they will feature it in a special bottling. The Pommard Clone is known for having characteristics of vibrant fruit and this 2019 Pommard Clone from the Solomon Hills Vineyard delivered those characteristics with a nose of raspberry and plum that immediately captivated our winemaker. Flavors of red roses and cherry are beautifully balanced with earthy notes and a streak of mineral before leading into the long, soft finish.
This lovely and complex wine pairs well with foods with layers of flavors. We recommend pairing it with salmon topped with blackberry sauce or cranberry glazed pork loin.
