2016 Claudia's Choice Pinot Noir

About Claudia's Choice
Named for Claudia Broadley, beloved wife, mother, and co-founder of Broadley Vineyards, our Claudia's Choice wines are truly the powerhouse wines of our offerings. Our Claudia's Choice bottlings come exclusively from 4 acres located mid-slope in our estate vineyards. Planted in 1983 of primarily Pommard clones, with a few rows of Wädensvil clone Pinot noir thrown in for structure, we use whole cluster fruit and ferment in open top French oak fermenters. The wine is aged in 100% French oak for 15 months and is always bottled unfined and unflitered. The 1994 Claudia's Choice Pinot noir is a legendary wine, earning an unprecedented 97 score from the Wine Spectator.

Claudia's Choice is a section that seems to consistently display a distinctive character. The vines in the this section usually ripen a bit later and often sets smaller clusters. The Claudia's Choice wines are not fruit forward - we want to display the big, dark, and complex character that typifies our Claudia's Choice release.
