Ten Oaks Pinot Noir Bottle

Ten Oaks
Pinot Noir

In 2008, we decided to plant 5 acres of Pommard clone of Pinot Noir adjacent to our Dijon 115 and 667 blocks with the hope that this elegant clone would inherit some of the richer, darker fruit profile of our Dijon clones. Named after the 10 majestic trees that surround this vineyard block, our Ten Oaks is harvested 2 weeks earlier than the rest of our vineyard, when the acidity is high and the sugar is low. This process yields a wine with great vibrancy and freshness and uses whole cluster fermentation to add an herbal component to this wine.
