Pinot Noir 2012, Block 10 - 150120-232535-5D-2327294 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.” April 2015





Pinot Noir 2012, Block 9-115 - 150120-232049-5D-2326993 points & Best Buy “Winter’s Hill Block 9 is planted to clone 115, one of the few Dijon clones thought to 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.” April 2015
