BRITTAN VINEYARDS Pinot Noir 'Gestalt Block' 2014

The Gestalt block in the Brittan Vineyard mostly contains Pinot Noir clones 115, 667, 777 and Swan on 101-14 and 4453 rootstocks. These southwestern facing blocks stare receive constant winds from the Pacific Ocean through the Van Duzer corridor.  Even more pungent, funky and earthy than the 'Basalt' bottling this dark colored Pinot Noir opens with aromatics of white truffles, blackberry cobbler, mint, teaberry, cranberries and orange zest. There are focused flavors of black raspberry liquor, white truffle and kumquat all backed by grippy tannins. The range, intensity and fruit weight is novel and simply remarkable. Allow this another year or two of bottle age beofre it hits its stride.​​​​​​​ (Best 2018-2030) - March, 2017 (OB)
