There is a section of vineyard right in the middle of the North slope where the soils are very heavy adobe clay resulting in the vines struggling to produce a crop more than 1 ton to the acre. It is a field blend of clone 777 and 115. This minimal crop yield tends to produce wines that are big, rich, "over the top" flavors; perfect for "Alyce". Alyce was my Mom and she was the life of the party.

There are 810 cases of the 2014 Pinot Noir Cuvée Alyce. This is another flamboyant beauty, with ostentatious notes of black cherry jam, kirsch, spice box, earth and loamy soil undertones. It is full-bodied, opulent and a total hedonistic, intellectual turn-on. Drink it over the next 7-8 years.
