On the nose, our 2013 Pinot Noir has subtle aromas of pomegranate juice, hoisin plum sauce, clove, Hibiscus, tea Leaves, cocoa nibs, rose petals, olallieberry, Chinese 5 spice, and brown sugar. On the palate, the wine has a plush entry, typical refined tannins we’ve consistently come to expect from Reuling Vineyard, great mid-palate weight and structure and incredibly focused, balanced acid that makes the mouth salivate and a complete finish that resonates in the mouth…a harmonious blend of three clones. [Full technical notes].
The 2013 Pinot Noir is also part of the 6-bottle Pinot Noir Clonal Collection.

- Melissa Vogt: Review of the 2013 Pinot Noir Clonal Collection. “[The] uniqueness shines brightly and Taylor transcends the bounds of expectations. Simply put, Reuling Vineyard’s 2013 Pinot Noir Clonal Collection is a taste of French red Burgundy from California’s Sonoma Coast.”
