We are excited to announce Wine & Spirits Magazine featured our 2012 Pinot Noir Block 10 and Block 9-115 in the December issue as Best Buys. Only 72 cases of each wine were made, and they were released to Wine Club members earlier this year, which means there are only a few cases left of each.

These wines are only $44 and you can purchase the Block 10 here and the Block 9-115 here

94 Points

“(Best Buy) Grown at a Pommard-clone block in the estate’s highest elevation vineyards, this wine feels autumnal and warm, slightly rustic, and above all, cozy, like a cabin in the woods. Its scent brings to mind dark cherries, tanbark and sweet notes of wood. The texture is generous and fine at once, bearing a vintage exuberance while held in check by a red, dusty minerality that practically defines the Dundee Hills. Gulpable and complex, it will reward the patient.” Wine & Spirits Magazine, December 2014

“(Best Buy) Winter’s Hill Block 9 is planted to clone 115, one of the few Dijon clones thoughtto make a complete wine on its own. That’s true here for sure-it’s the source of this wine’s pretty brightness and fine dusty red minerality. The strawberry and kirschwasser flavors are precise and nimble, saturating the palate even as they remain tense and lifted in a finish that feels invigorating.” Wine & Spirits Magazine, December 2014
