2014 Bouchaine Gee Vyd Pinot Noir
This wine is 100% St. Clair selection from the original suitcase clone planings by Jim St. Clair in 1968. The Gee vineyard is now over 30 years old and is completely dry farmed, sending roots deep into the soil and concentrating flavors. Blackberry and morello cherry aromas explode on the nose, with cigar and 5 spice adding depth and intrigue. Brooding briar and cherry notes dominate the palate along with dark chocolate and notes of cigar box. Concentrated and powerful but retains its elegance.
