Vinous Media ReviewRated 93Another selection from Rancho Las Hermanas, the 2013 Pinot Noir Pommard Clone shows the more succulent, resonant side of Sta. Rita Hills Pinot. Dark cherry, plum, spice and cola flesh out in a supple, round Pinot to drink now and over the next handful of years. The 2013 spent 17 months in French oak, 50% new. (Antonio Galloni)Wine Advocate ReviewRated 92I loved the 2013 Pinot Noir Pommard Clone and it comes from Ashley's Vineyard as well, all from Pommard Clones, which generally give a darker, more Burgundian expression. In this case though, it gives up more strawberry, sweet spice and tons of floral characteristics to go with medium-bodied richness, beautiful sweetness of fruit and a layered, balanced texture. Seeing 17 months in 50% new French oak, it's a beauty to drink over the coming 3-5 years.Wine Tasting NotesThis has remained a very small project - approximately twelve barrels of each wine - and delivers some of the finest expressions of pinot noir. You will find black cherry, forest floor, floral and even slightly smoky notes on the nose. The palate delivers nice structure with flavors of cherry, strawberry, cinnamon and dried herbs.Alcohol 14.1%
