2019 Pinot Noir Clone 115 Reserve
Our Clone Series was created to highlight the different nuances that each Pinot Noir clone presents. What do we mean by “clone”? Grapevines in general, and Pinot Noir vines, are genetically unstable and can mutate over time. Each grape variety is made up of many subtypes, called clones. These clones can result in different flavors, intensity, color, etc. At Scheid Vineyards, we grow 20 different clones of Pinot Noir. Clone 115 is one of the Dijon clones and we prize it for the exotic red fruit and heady aromas it exhibits. This single clone, single vineyard bottling is a true reflection of the terroir of our Riverview Vineyard as well as the exquisite Dijon clone 115. This vintage has lifted aromas of cherry, raspberry and currant with subtle leather and earth notes. Beautifully balanced, this medium-bodied wine has a subtle oak influence and silky long finish.
