Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.
Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.
Our Block 31 release is a blend of 70% Pommard and 30% Wadenswil clone fruit harvested from Block 31 on the West hill of Shea Vineyard. The Pommard fruit offers the concentrated cherry notes and overall structure in the wine while the Wadenswil presents the bright, effusive, plummy fruit and floral tones. This is a beauty, barrel aged in 57% new French oak.
"The 2008 Pinot Noir Block 31 is more deeply colored. It sports a brooding bouquet of spicy black fruits, earth notes, Asian spices, black cherry and blueberry. Mouth-coating, dense, rich, and loaded with flavor, it contains enough underlying structure to evolve for a minimum of 4-5 years. There is a strong chance that this powerful yet elegant Pinot will see its 20th birthday in fine form."
The Wine Advocate
"Medium-deep ruby color; deep, tight red cherry and forest floor aromas; deep, bit closed, earthy red cherry flavors with lots of herbal and forest floor notes; some tannin; good structure and balance; long finish. Complex yet closed at this point, this is a Pinot that will truly reward some time in the cellar. "
"Polished, creamy and generous with its ripe plum and currant flavors, integrating seamlessly with hints of crème brûlée and nutmeg on the long, vivid finish. A big wine that dances easily. Drink now through 2018. 294 cases made."

it is so difficult is why it is so loved. Pinot Noir hails from Burgundy, a region known for crafting the most collectible and sought-after wines from this varietal.
