Full of black pepper and blackberry

2016 Colmar 538 selection Pinot Noir

About the wine

The Colmar 538 clone, originally from Alsace, France, is one of our favorite clones planted on our 340-acre estate vineyard because of its balance. Only select acres on our property are planted with this clone. These grapes deliver dark fruit characters with spice and an earthy backtone classic of great Pinot Noir.

This beautiful garnet colored wine greets you with notes of cranberry and blackberry spice. Flavors of pomegranate and cherry balance perfectly with the acidity. The wine has a silky elegance that leads into a lush finish.

Aged in 100% French oak with 50% new oak.

Food Pairing

Red cherry and ripe blackberry notes pair with black pepper encrusted wild boar, venison with Bing cherries or leg of lamb rubbed with rosemary. The touch of spice blended with cedar is a superb match for cedar plank salmon, spiced duck breast or herb roasted chicken. The touch of oak compliments aged hard cheeses such as Grana Padano, Gouda or Mezzo Sec.
