    Winemaker's Notes:

    We made our Pinot Noir Block 5 from Dijon clone 777 fruit sourced from Block 5 on the East hill of Shea vineyard. This steep, south-facing slope produced grapes that yield a concentration of dark juicy fruit on the nose and palate. Fine-grain tannins create a silky, polished sensation that carries through to the finish. We hope you enjoy this exceptional, limited release wine.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Supple, generous, silky and complex, offering a many-layered mouthful of ripe cherry, blackberry, dark chocolate and spice flavors that linger enticingly on the long, evocative finish. Drink now through 2019. 337 cases made.

    The 2009 Pinot Noir Block 5 is made from Dijon Clone 777. It reveals a wine with greater sweetness of fruit, more complexity, and outstanding depth and concentration. It has enough ripe tannin to evolve for 1-2 years and will deliver pleasure through 2019 if not longer.
