Product Description

Before superstar winemaker Wes Hagen began working for J. Wilkes, he proved his skill at Clos Pepe.  The winery's owners have since retired and Wes has moved on, but his wine will remain a testament to his achievements at Clos Pepe.

The estate-bottled 2013 Clos Pepe Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir is from a vintage which produced both richness and elegance. Intense berry and cherry aromatics burst from the glass along with a clear savory edge for complexity and balance. Baking spice, lightly toasty oak, rich red fruits, and background underbrush will please the most discriminating Pinot lover.

Varietal Composition: 100 percent Pinot Noir
Appellation: Sta. Rita Hills AVA

92 Points - Vinous Media
"Vivid ruby-red. Very fresh, intense perfume of red berry liqueur, smoky minerals, licorice and Indian spices.  Rich, concentrated and sharply focused, offering intense black raspberry, blood orange and floral pastille flavors lifted by juicy acidity and a spicy nuance.  Finishes with sweet, harmonious tannins that fade smoothly into the wine's juicy, spice-accented fruit." -JR, Dec/2014

92 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"Beef jerky, dried mushrooms, black pepper, pencil lead, black olive and elderberry swirl into a memorable nose on this wine by professorial vintner Wes Hagen. It's incredibly alive on the palate, delivering soy and deeply tart cranberry-cherry juice flavors, and needs until late 2015 to emerge as an even more solid sipper." -MK, 7/1/15
