Single Vineyard Pinot Noir
Viewing this page verifies the origin and authenticity for this bottle of 2019 Clos du Ciel Estate Pinot Noir 750ml.
The 2019 Peter Michael Winery Clos du Ciel Estate Pinot Noir (clo du see el), “Wall-Enclosed Vineyard of the Sky”, is a metaphor for the rare microclimate of this vineyard site. The soils of the vineyard are a composite of clay, silt, and volcanic gravels, which lend to polished tannins, body, and hints of mineral graphite. ‘Clos du Ciel’ traditionally presents the most full-bodied structure of our three Seaview Estate Pinot Noirs.
Winemaker Tasting Notes:
Displaying a saturated, red ruby color with pink and inky hues, the wine offers aromas of red rose petals, lively blackberry, strawberry jam, and cherry kirsch. Savory clove, cinnamon, sandalwood, and hints of earthy redwood character blend well with an element of toasty, slightly smoky new oak. Generous and full-bodied with abundant tannins, ‘Clos du Ciel’ demonstrates balance with a seamless texture and an astonishing finish offering precision, delineation, and power.
