WineMag on Top Pinot Noir from Paul Cluver Wines

“Our Pinot Noir needs a new name,” mutters Paul Clüver IV, managing director of Paul Cluver Wines in Elgin. “People tend to call it our ‘ordinary’ Pinot and it’s anything but ordinary!”

He’s right about that, with the 2009’s latest achievement being a 4 Star rating in Winemagazine’s annual Pinot Noir review, published in the June issue. He may also be right about the Seven Flags 2008 being the estate’s “culmination of dedication to the practice of viticulture and winemaking” given that it is this year’s top-scoring Pinot with 4½ Stars.
