2016 Pinot Noir Carneros, Mitsuko's Vineyard, Dijon Clone 667


Medium-bodied scarlet in the glass. Aromas of cherry, crushed cranberries, forest floor and black currant explode out of the glass. Silky texture with bright acidity keeps this wine balanced and able to carry the bold red fruit and cola flavors. Secondary characteristics of dried shitake mushrooms, moss and rhubarb start to become apparent as the wine opens up adding an earthy complexity and depth. The fine grain tannins round out the palate, giving a deliciously savory finish to the wine.

Vineyard Notes


Mitsuko's Vineyard is 365 acres in the Los Carneros appellation within the Napa Valley. The rolling land of this vineyard has a broad range of soil types, elevations, slopes, and aspects which create countless distinct microclimates. After careful study, eight different grape varieties were planted at this vineyard utilizing every bit of its diversity. Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are commonly found in Los Carneros and are the keys to the region’s notoriety. In Mitsuko’s Vineyard these varieties receive ideal cooling breezes blowing in from the San Pablo Bay which create the slow, balanced growing season these varieties need to build complexity. The vineyard takes its name from founder Jan Shrem’s late wife with whom he became devoted to building Clos Pegase winery and making it an iconic destination in Napa Valley.

Winemaker Notes


Our Mitsuko’s Vineyard Dijon Clone 667 Pinot Noir highlights the signature influence of a grape’s DNA by offering quality aromas of ripe red cherry, strawberry, rose petal and spice flavors. The flesh of this clone is firm with soft tannins. Clone 667 is considered the workhorse of the clonal pinots.
