Clendenen Family Vineyards The Pip Pinot Noir 2018
Jim Clendenen (Au Bon Climat) started this label in 2000 from small, family tended vineyards. The wine is named for Clendenen's beloved Border Collie, Pip.
It is a gorgeous Pinot Noir with notes of cherry, anise, and currant. A luscious feel on the palate, yet quite pale in color. Only neutral barrels are used for aging, allowing the fruit to really shine through.
