    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.

    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.

    The Wine Advocate

    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.
