Pinot Noir-2018 Ingrid's Vineyard
Our tiny (3 ½ acres) Ingrid’s Vineyard Pinot Noir, planted at the entrance to Bernardus Lodge in Carmel Valley, is typical of the newest trend in terms of climate and location of the highest quality Pinot Noir vineyards in California. Only ten miles from the ocean, our vineyard enjoys sunny weather with cool ocean breezes throughout the summer and fall seasons. This produces a Pinot of great intensity and well-defined fruit expression.
We planted our Ingrid’s Pinot Noir vineyard in 1999 with three of our favorite clones: 667, 777 and Pommard. These are providing us with ever deeper, richer wines as the vineyard reaches full maturity.
Our 2018 Ingrid’s Pinot has a deeply colored robe, promising an exciting tasting experience. The aromas exhibit ripe, dark red fruit essences along with spice notes. The palate is very full and intense, with ripe red fruit flavors, which linger beautifully on the long, solid finish.
