115 Clone aged in Neutral Oak: flavors of red cherry swirling with tropical fruits of mango, papaya, pineapple and guavas, as well as basil, mint, oregano, and rosemary. An excellent example of this mainstay clone.
Pommard Clone aged in Neutral Oak: more structured and tannic mouthfeel, definite body and definition. Up front cherry, stone fruit, and leather flavors with a lovely flintiness in the finish and a backbone of basil and oregano tending towards dry straw and dust, perhaps an expression of the earthier characteristics for which this clone is known.
Pommard Clone aged in New Hungarian Oak: new oak attributes of cinnamon, vanilla and nutmeg sit firmly up front, with hints of dark chocolate and coffee along with the vanilla that is a hallmark of oak. These spices and flavors enhance the stone fruit character and give life to the more confected side of this wine (think peach crisp or cherry pie) as well as the herbal character. This wine is an excellent demonstration of how oak can affect and enhance certain characteristics in a wine.
