    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2008 Pinot Noir Isabelle is a selection of the estate's 36 best barrels across many of the Central Coast's finest Pinot terroirs, including Sanford and Benedict, Talley, Bien Nacido and Le Bon Climat. Striking aromatics meld into an expressive core of fruit in this bold, sensual Pinot. This is at once rich, yet accessible. Fine, silky tannins frame a finish of exceptional elegance and pedigree. In short, the Isabelle is a jewel of a wine.

    The Wine Advocate

    Jim Clendenen blends this wine from his favored barrels, including lots from Bien Nacido, Sanford & Benedict, Talley Rincon and Mt. Carmel. His 2008 is boldly fruited and rich, a dark-toned pinot noir with precise flavors. The texture is supple, the wine fine enough to bridge a range of foods—from a seafood stew to beef or lamb.
