667® PINOT NOIR

BEHIND THE VINES
Vine selection 667 is one of the prestigious “Dijon clones” brought back to California from the Cote d’Or in Burgundy, France. This vine stock forms tight, compact clusters that generate deeper color and more layers of tannins than other Pinot Noirs previously grown in California. We grow nearly half of our 667 Pinot Noir grapes in Monterey’s Santa Lucia Highlands, with the remainder sourced from the gentle slopes of our family-owned San Bernabe Vineyard and in nearby Arroyo Seco. These sites offer heavy, dark soils reminiscent of 667’s ancestral home.

WINEMAKING
Pinot Noir clone 667 is naturally tannic and concentrated, so our winemaker applies extra care to spotlight its best qualities. The crushed grapes are cold soaked for up to four days, using gentle pump-overs to bring out the color and flavor without extracting bitter seed tannins. It is then fermented at cooler temperatures to lock in deep color and flavors. After aging on French and American oak, it is blended in sections to add vibrant aromatic qualities to the finished wine. This gentle care results in a rich, velvety Pinot Noir..

TASTING NOTES
Noble Vines 667 Pinot Noir opens with aromas of black cherry, blackberry and bittersweet cocoa. Velvety tannins and bright, balanced acidity support core flavors of ripe plum, cherry preserves and delicate hints of vanilla and oak

PAIRING
The pedigree of the grapes makes 667 Pinot Noir a wine to be enjoyed on its own or with a wide range of cuisine, particularly salmon, roast lamb or cheeses and nuts.
