v. 2013

Raspberry, meyer lemon and pine. The 2013 Conifer is a forward, soaring wine. A piano composition played on the black keys, bright and alive. Amid vibrant fruit intensity, its plush shape is suggested rather than rigidly defined—a Pinot Noir from the impressionist school, a wine for a never-ending summer’s night. 

100% de-stemmed, the Conifer is aged in 75% new French oak for 17 months. The wine represents a blend of Pommard and Dijon clones, drawn from several vineyard blocks with varying depths of volcanic soil. The cumulative effect is a balanced wine of juicy fruit, citrus zest, warm spice, and forest air.
