Description

A cool and rocky site in the Mayacama Mountains is home to the Clajeux Vineyard. We have hand worked the same 12 rows in this vineyard formerly called Wild Iris since 2003. Planted to clone 7 in well drained volcanic soils, this site is cooled by afternoon breezes sweeping in from the Russian River Valley below and the ocean to the West. As a result, the vineyard is characterized by long slow flavor development in the grapes and naturally low yields.

93 Points Vinous - Opaque ruby. Pungent cherry-cola, mulberry, licorice and dark chocolate on the nose, plus a zesty note of cracked pepper. Sweet, sappy and full-bodied but lithe, with deep dark berry preserve, cherry compote and chocolate flavors complemented by a hint of licorice and a subtle cola note. Finishes with outstanding lingering sweetness and fine, dusty tannins. This wine gained energy with aeration and should be a fine cellar candidate.
