Tasting Notes: The 2013 Basalt Block Pinot Noir reveals red-fruited notes of black cherry, red plum skin, black raspberry, and red licorice on the nose. As the wine slides onto the palate, notes of red current, cassis, blackberry compote, pomegranate, French lavender, bergamot and orange zest unveil, framed in by black pepper and allspice. The layers of complexity, savoriness, and strong mid palate provide the backbone for the wine and create a long, lingering, elegant finish.

Production Notes: The Pinot noir for the Basaly Block predominately consists of the Pommard selection, blended with clonal selecions 667, 777, 115 and Swan. The vines are planted on Riparia Gloire, 3309 and 101-14 rootstocks.

The fruit for the 2013 vintage was picked in late September before the heavy rains and allowed to cold soak for four days before fermentation began. After fermentation, the wine was aged in approximately 25% new French oak for 12 months.

Production: 1326 cases
