“Le Bon Climat Vineyard”
Santa Maria Valley, California
*This cuvee is named in homage to Jim Clendenen’s deceased, amazing Border Collie “Pip”, former winery mascot.
This cuvee is 100% Pinot Noir (mostly Dijon clone 667) sourced from Jim Clendenen’s Le Bon Climat Vineyard in the Santa Maria Valley.
The fruit was fermented in small open top fermenters, racked into neutral Francois Freres French oak barrels, and aged 1 year. Only 500cs of this “The Pip” cuvee are produced.
