2019 Estate "Rock Blocks" Pinot Noir

This is a three-barrel selection from our 22-acre estate Appassionata Vineyard, which surround the winery. We have a great diversity of soil types and clones, giving us many options for the blending palette. This edition is a blend of fruit from the rockiest parts of the vineyard, which has thin volcanic clay topsoil over fractured basalt bedrock. It's amazing to see how this very rocky soil is reflected in the firm structure, dark, brambly fruit and forceful texture of the wine. That distinctive, stony character is why we decided to do this special cuvée.

Blue fruit note carries onto the palate, where it's joined by spicecake, cola and mocha flourishes. Shows excellent tenacity on the finish, which features repeating flority and round, well-judged tannins.
