Winemaker's Notes

Dark red fruits on the nose and an earthy, brambly character with deep plum flavors on the palate. The tannins are beautifully integrated.

Critical Acclaim

"Smooth, round and polished, offering a big, juicy mouthful of plush blackberry and currant fruit shaded with hints of mint and mineral, lingering beautifully. Drink now through 2014. 294 cases made. "
92 Points

"The 2008 Pinot Noir Block 7 is made entirely from the Wadenswil clone. It is more reticent than its siblings and, while it is substantial, it lacks the complexity of the Block 31. Even so, this is a rich, dense, structured, age-worthy Pinot that will amply reward those who cellar it for 5+ years."
92 Points

"Medium-deep ruby color; rich, ripe aromas of red cherry and some herbs; rich, deep, cherry, spice and earthy flavors, moderate tannin and sweet oak notes; good structure and balance; long finish. Big, deep Pinot that is well-balanced and very tasty. Needs time in the glass and the cellar. "
