    Winemaker's Notes:

    Lush, velvety, creamy, bursting with berries, fragrant flowers, and soft wafts of vanilla, the 2001 Knox is a wine for hedonists. Made from 50% Dijon clones and 50% traditional California selections planted by Jim Clendenen at the higher elevations of Bien Nacido Vineyard, this wine seems to grow in stature with every vintage- much like Jim's own son, Knox, who lends the wine his name.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Selected from higher elevations at Bien Nacido, Knox Alexander is brisk and fresh in 2007, its fragrance ranging from raspberry to fat black cherry. Its tannin adds accents of sundried tomato and seaweed, expanding with air to make this a relatively big pinot noir while remaining agile and clean. For braised pork shoulder.
