2014 LAIRD “PHANTOM RANCH” PINOT NOIR
Have you ever wondered what makes Pinot Noir so complex? Did you know that not all Pinot Noir Vines are the same? Laird’s Phantom Ranch Pinot is a 50/50 blend of two distinctly different Pinot Noir clones. Clone 115 comes from Morey St Denis, one of Burgundy’s noble areas and is known for producing elegant wines. The Pommard Clone which also comes from Burgundy is revered for lending structure and meaty characters as well as remarkable fragrance. Paul Hobbs selected both of these clones for Laird’s Phantom Ranch Vineyard to create a wine with the perfect combination of structure, elegance and aroma.
Composed in a chillingly deep, velvety style that I love, and we don’t have anything else quite like it on our tasting menu in Yountville… Laird’s 2014 Phantom Ranch is haunted by spine-tingling allure, laced with shades of wild blueberries, spring flowers, vanilla and spices. The winery has always attracted terrific winemakers. In 2014, Laird’s Consulting Winemaker was Paul Hobbs, one of the top winemakers in the world… If you enjoy full-bodied, deep, velvety Pinots, I strongly recommend a case of this limited release.
