BRITTAN VINEYARDS Pinot Noir 'Basalt Block' 2014

The 2014 Brittan Vineyards 'Basalt Block' Pinot Noir is primarily comprised of clones Pommard, 667, 777, 115 and Swan. This is another utterly compelling wine from winemaker Robert Brittan which begins with complex aromatics of cranberry, teaberrg, mulberry, pomegranate seed, forest floor and black truffle oil, all taking shape and continually bringing you back to the glass for more. The richness and mouthfeel of this wine is purely sumptuous. There are beautifully concentrated flavors of wild blackberry cobbler, blood orange, black cherry, wet stone, black tea and black truffle with hints of sandalwood. The minerality is stunning, as this wine will truly age geacefully for years to come. (Best 2017-2030) - March, 2017 (OB)
