This 2007 vintage of ZD Pinot Noir marks the 39th consecutive Carneros Pinot Noir produced by ZD Wines. This wine is a perfect example of the very best Carneros has to offer! It is crafted from a blend of clones including the Dijon 667, 777, 115 and the Pommard 4 from Jim Haireďż˝s organically certified vineyard in Carneros. The dark ruby color and aromas of briary black cherry and red plum are complemented by subtle hints of vanilla, toast and rhubarb pie. Aged in small barrels, the toasty French oak character is well integrated with the ripe, unctuous fruit. Silky tannins carry the flavors through to an amazingly long finish.
