The Simple Life Pinot Noir offers lifted fresh fruit and floral aromas with an incredibly soft and juicy palate. The core of this wine was crafted around the Pommard Clone 4 Pinot Noir fruit from Clarksburg, California. The Pommard Clone 4 has clusters about half of the size of a clenched fist with bright fruit concentration and fresh raspberry flavors.
WINEMAKING We selected a few special blocks of distinct clones of Pinot Noir — Clone 4 from Elk Slough Vineyard in Clarksburg (78% of the blend), Clone 23 from Towne Home Vineyard in Clarksburg (9% of the blend), and Clone 115 from Valera Farms in Lodi (7% of the blend). This blend is truly Pommard Clone 4 Pinot Noir driven — these small and brilliant clusters give this blend its aromatic charm, vibrancy, and depth on the finish. The grapes were fermented in a combination of oak as well as stainless steel tank to retain the bright, fresh fruit character. The final blend was aged for 10 months using 100% French Oak.
TASTING NOTES The Simple Life Pinot Noir is a glossy, cherry red color in the glass with bright aromas of ripe strawberry, cranberry and rose petal. The medium bodied wine offers a juicy palate with a velvety texture and fine tannins. The juicy fruit-forward palate offers flavors of tart cherry, pomegranate, sweet vanilla oak and very subtle spice. The combination of bright fruit and nuanced oak make for a balanced, easy- drinking wine.
THE SIMPLE LIFE PHILOSOPHY We treasure this small town, California life and its simple pleasures — like walking downtown and shopping at family-owned grocery stores, cooking with fresh ingredients from local farms, and drinking wine made by our family and friends who have been here for generations. We created these wines for the people that enjoy the simple things in life; friends, family and a glass of wine.
