Although Lake County would not strike one as being the most ideal growing region for Pinot Noir, the unique growing conditions do provide a few locations to grow Pinot. The Dorn and Lyon families took on the Pinot Challenge, grafting clone 32 Pinot Noir onto established vines. Each successive year brings more depth and complexity to this Pinot Noir, proving again the diversity of the Lake County wine scape. This Pinot Noir is aged 9 months in French and Hungarian oak.
