2018 Block 5 Pinot Noir
Made from 100% Dijon 777 clone, this was a favorite of those who came to our barrel tastings in 2019. This expressive wine is big, lush and lifted with a wonderful red fruit and floral profile. We don’t make Block 5 every year, but the 2018 Block 5 is a standout. 50% new French oak. 213 cases made. $66/bottle.
"Very seductive pinot here with aromas of fresh red cherries and graphite, as well as forest wood and leaves. The palate has supple, velvety tannins that carry succulent, darker-cherry flavors in a crisp, vibrant and upbeat mode. Elegance with power. Drink or hold." - jamessuckling.com, 96 points
