A delightfully different clone. Long dry harvest and perfect picking conditions. 16 months in French oak. Bold profile, structure and essence of clove and cigar. Abundance.

Story: Twelve-Row Block rests just North of Peach Tree Block and West of Orchard Block. It is one of the original sites planted by the Sokol Blosser Family in the 1970s. The family thought they were sold the classic Pommard clone Pinot Noir vines back in the ‘70s but they turned out to be an atypical clone of Pinot Noir called Martini clone, but internally it is referred to as the Twelve-Row Clone.
