One of a kind! From the 2013 vintage, this wine represents the best lots of Jim's Pinot Noir: 75% Isabelle, 20% Knox Alexander, and 5% Barham Mendelsohn. Sensational? Yes it is. The bottle is graced with a hand-etched and painted art piece called "Dance of the Pomegranites" by noted artist Yuroz. It is as stunning as the wine. Magnums only. Only 200 available.

A wine of charm and balance. Delicate fruit notes of apple, licorice and melon effortlessly intertwine with a gentle toasty character. The 24 months aging in new Francois Frere oak barrels makes an obvious, but not overpowering statement.

Jim Clendenen has a creative, curious mind and that means he likes to explore outside the confines of the Burgundian world. Vita Nova is his brand for Bordeaux varieties. From Bien Nacido Vineyard, our Merlot has deep berry fruit with hints of dried herbs. Twenty months in barrel have reigned in the tannins.

SKU: MER12D

A deep, full flavored Cabernet with berry and spice notes. Vita Nova is a label we use for Bordeaux varietals. There are microclimates within vineyards in Santa Barbara County that have the right conditions to create rich but supple Cabernets of density, character, and are fruit forward.
