Bright, focused and beautifully delineated. A layered wine of intense aromatics, precision and focus that exudes energy from start to finish. The 2014 is striking. It's as simple as that. Named after Jim Clendenen's son. Score: 94 points Antonio Galloni's Vinous; 90 points Robert Parker.
After nearly 2 decades, we are back in Oregon. We have always loved the people and the grapes of Oregon. This Pinot Noir is supple with generous fruit, yet is a wine of structure. The underlying power and complexity are “under the surface” currently but will be apparent soon. The 25% of stem inclusion gives the wine a nice spice note, not seen in Oregon Pinots. The spice complements the barrel component to make a seamless, rich, mouth-watering wine.
The ABC Pinot Santa Maria Valley is specifically crafted for our market in England, and you can't get it anywhere except the winery (and online)! This Pinot is slightly more focused and structured than our more broad Santa Barbara County Pinot Noir. It is classically Santa Maria meaning a wine of great aromatics and depth.
Rich and powerful, this well structured wine has a darker ruby hue as well as a beautiful nose of cherry, dried cranberry, earthy forest floor, ground herbs, smoked earth. Named after Jim Clendenen's son. Score 96 points Antonio Galloni's Vinous; 92+ points, Jeb Dunnuck; 91 points Robert Parker.
A great follow-up to our beautiful 2016. Sweet dark cherry, plum, rose petal, mint and blood orange all run through this racy, captivating Pinot. Full and rich, its forward fruit makes it enjoyable now but it will age for years to come.
Great value! Miles above other Pinots in the same price category, this wine is a particularly wonderful vintage. It is deeply colored with aromas and flavors of strawberries and raspberries joined by anise and clove in mouth filling intensity.
This single vineyard Pinot delivers depth. The 2017 is a rich, meaty red with a dense fruit character showing earthy, berry aromas joined by mouth-filling flavors of plum and bitter chocolate on the palate. Aged 18 months in french oak barrels, one third new. Scored 91 points & "Best Buy" from Wine & Spirits Mag.
This is a rich, deep Pinot of substance. Cola and boysenberry aromas are evident and joined by mouth-filling flavors of plum and bitter chocolate on the palate. Match with oak grilled chops.

The 2016 is richer than previous versions showing dried cranberry/berry fruit with earth and tobacco notes. The body is medium weight yet carries immense waves of flavors, including sarsaparilla, pomegranate and smoke. A well integrated wine that is superb now. For true burgundian fans.
