Clendenen Family

This not just another label, it is a project of passion for winemaker/owner Jim Clendenen.  These are artisan, small lots of distinctive wines where commerce is not the driving force. These wines have the luxury to be in barrel as long as they need it (5 years for the Nebbiolo!). Wines that are nuanced, long lived, food-friendly, with firm acidities, and moderate alcohol. For older vintages, see menu.

This is our “reserve” Nebbiolo utilizing Old World techniques including 72 months in French oak barrels. Classic Nebbiolo notes of spiced cherries, licorice, and new leather give way to a medium to full-bodied, elegant, seamless wine that reminiscent of a Barolo. It should evolve nicely for at least a decade. Scored 91 points Jeb Dunnuck.

This is our “reserve” Nebbiolo. The wine, though aged in barrel for five years, has fresh floral notes and shows wild strawberry and plum aromatics. The mouth filling texture accompanies dried cherry flavors which transition into a clean bright finish with good acid balance. Scored 93 points Antonio Galloni's Vinous; 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.

Intriguing subtle exotic fruit character suggesting Asian pear and lychee nut. It is not oily or unctuous but rather crisp and dry. Its Alsatian character and elegant sophistication makes it a delight as an appetizer with a charcuterie platter, but also serve with spicy Thai cuisine or a pork roast.

Showcasing Gewürz's natural exotic jasmine, lychee nut and Asian pear fruit character, this crisp, dry white is not overwhelmed by flamboyant fruit; it is judiciously enticing. Its elegant sophistication makes it a delight in warm weather, but also a wonderful match with pork dishes and smoked meats. A classic.
