Clarice Wine Company Pinot Noir from Adam Lee

Super Exclusive…..
Clarice Wine Company Pinot Noir 

Plus Zoom Tasting with Adam LeeWe are so proud and excited to partner with critically acclaimed
Pinot Noir expert, Winemaker Adam Lee (founder of Siduri), to have the
opportunity to offer his Clarice Wine Company wines to a retail audience.  First time outside of the winery mailing list.  This is only the second vintage produced.

Pushing the envelope in a way only Adam can, Clarice Wine Company  brings together many facets of Adam’s life and career.  The wines tell the story of how a young boy’s curiosity of his
grandmother’s style of cooking can inspire a unique way of making wine yielding three incredible Pinot Noirs.   The grapes are sourced from two very special vineyards in California’s  Santa Lucia Highlands that Adam has worked with for decades.  Adam graciously sent us samples, we believe they are amazing representations of not only his craftsmanship, but the region as well. 

These wines are ONLY available on a pre-sell basis!
DEADLINE -to order for the tasting is  5PM 8/7/20

3 Pack (1 of each) - $270 / tasting set
Only customers that purchase the zoom tasting set will be able to order additional wine after the zoom tasting.  

Adam truly loves connecting with all the Clarice supporters.  All that participate in this presale will be invited to attend a Zoom tasting  live with Adam in early September. He will discuss Clarice, Pinot Noir, the  wine biz, vineyards, grapes, and anything else that comes up!

More info on the wines that are in the pack.

2018 Clarice Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir -- 197 cases made
Starting with the 2018 Pinot Noir Santa Lucia Highlands, its translucent
ruby/purple color is followed by Gevrey-like bouquet of black cherries
and savory dark fruits, damp earth, leafy herbs, and forest floor. Needing
plenty of air to show at its best, it’s medium-bodied and has a silky,
elegant texture, good acidity, and again, a Burgundian style in its texture.

2018 Clarice Rosella's Vineyard Pinot Noir

From a great vineyard located in the heart of the Santa Lucia Highlands,
the 2018 Pinot Noir Rosella’s Vineyard offers a touch more fruit in its
bouquet of framboise, wild strawberries, spring flowers, and candied
orange-like aromas and flavors. It’s beautifully balanced, medium to full-
bodied, has plenty of mid-palate depth, and more structure and depth
than the straight appellation release.

2018 Clarice Garys’ Vineyard Pinot Noir
“Seeing plenty of stems and a fair amount of new oak, the 2018 Pinot
Noir Garys’ Vineyard is the biggest, richest Pinot Noir in the lineup and
has a rocking core of red and black fruits, baking spices, dried flowers,
and a hint of iron. Beautifully textured, full-bodied, with a deep, layered
mid-palate, and ripe, building tannins, this is a rock star of a Santa Lucia
Highlands Pinot Noir to drink over the coming decade or more. While it’smy favorite of the three releases, all of these are beautiful, singular wines.
