The Right Bank is a 12 acre vineyard located above Latitude 45. It consists of 11 acres planted to Pommard clone Pinot Noir, plus 1 acre of cool climate Noir clone Syrah. This southwest facing knoll, with its rocky, shallow soils possesses a uniquely warm micro-climate and extreme soil conditions. These special characteristics promote the intensity of the resulting wines. This Pinot Noir is bottled as the Right Bank single vineyard selection and is also used to craft our popular Cali’s Cuvee Pinot Noir along with other Reserve blends.
Herbal, woody, minty aromas; forward flavors of cherry and berry with mint tea and earthy notes; good structure and balance; long finish. Herbal style of Pinot with good complexity.
