Allen Meadows - Burghound:

"A ripe, pure and elegant nose that is very pinot with intense red berry aromas that carry hints of underbrush and earth over to the rich and equally pure middle weight flavors that possess fine transparency, detail and lovely balance on the cranberry suffused finish that also displays an attractive vibrancy. This is at once delicious and serious and as noted, the balance is impeccable. If you enjoy classically styled pinot that carries almost no youthful austerity, this would be a fine choice. Drink 2012+."

"Clary Ranch is a small family owned winery with wines crafted from their own vineyards where they produce less than 2 tons per acre, "resulting in wines of concentration and finesse." Paul Clary is the winemaker/vineyard manager." (07/09)

Product Description:

WINERY:
"Clary Ranch is located in the Petaluma Gap region of the Sonoma Coast AVA, about 5 miles due west of Petaluma and 11 miles from Tomales Bay. Clary Ranch Wines was founded by grower & winemaker Paul Clary, who planted the estate vineyards in 2000."

"The vineyards consist of 5 blocks of Pinot Noir on about 12.5 acres and 2 blocks of Syrah on about 2.5 acres. The Pinot Noir clones are Dijon 133 & 667, and Pommard 4. The Syrah clones are Syrah 174 and Shiraz 1. The Pacific winds blow strongly through the end of August, and the grapes depend upon the warm, still days of September and October to ripen. Clary Ranch is on the extreme edge of cool-climate viticulture on the continent." -Winery
