Tasting Notes

Juicy, ripe, yet with deft balance as befits any Clenenden wine - tiny strawberries, strawberry oil, a hint of clove and anise, with plum compote on the palate, blueberries and a hint of mocha.

More Info

Needing little introduction, we are delighted to now have the wines of the late Jim Clendenen available. Deeply influenced by his love of Burgundy, Clendenen set up ABC with Adam Tolmach in 1982 with the ambition to make wines that spoke of their place, which emulate the restraint and finesse of Europe but with a magic touch of New World flair. The vineyards ABC source their grapes from reads as a ‘who’s who’ of Central Coast vineyards with Bien Nacido and Jim’s own “Le Bon Climat” as the biggest contributors. He passed away in 2021 and is remembered as one of the most charismatic and influential people of his vinous generation.
