2014 Jana Winery Pinot Noir, Monterey County
50% produced from a special clone of Pinot Noir brought to the United States by Dr. Richard Peterson. 50% from an already existing clone of Pinot Noir. Both clones are from the Alarid Vineyard in the Santa Lucia Highlands of Monterey County. Small yields of flavorful grapes were harvested at the point of ripeness, producing a delicate European style Pinot Noir. This wine has good balance and a fresh, crisp finish. Aromas and flavors of bright cherry, raspberry, white pepper, cranberry and dust after a fresh rain.
