Our 2016 Clay Court Pinot Noir received an excellent 93 point rating from Wine Enthusiast:
“Made from Pommard and Dijon clones of Pinot Noir, this is a snappy, lip-smacking wine, loaded with tangy raspberry and blueberry flavors. Highlights of cola, tea and subtle streaks of savory notes contribute to the overall length and complexity.” –Paul Gregutt
