2019 Lone Oak Pinot Noir MAGNUM


     Our Lone OakPinot Noir – so named for the solitary oak tree overlooking its vines – is a blend of leading French clones grown in our estate Evan’s Ranch vineyard.  Despite the provenance of the clones, and compared to our Morgan’s Pinot Noir (which showcases the brighter and more classic international characters of Pinot Noir), Lone Oakis more Californian than Burgundian in style, with richer, riper fruit.  It seduces with fresh, pure aromas of sweet black cherry, ripe strawberry, red plum and black raspberry nicely complemented by lovely sandalwood, rose hips tea and vanilla scents. 

         This wine is rich and concentrated on the palate, with delicious dark cherry, plum and blackberry flavors balanced by bright acidity and supple tannins.  Our Lone OakPinot Noir culminates in a long, fruit-filled finish accented by savory spice, oak and mineral tones.  Delightful on release, it will age beautifully in bottle for up to five years, from the date it  was bottled. 

Enjoy!
