Winter’s Hill 2014 Single Block Series Block 1 Estate Pinot Noir, Dundee Hills, $49

By on March 29, 2017

Whether it is white or red, the Gladhart family continues to take it from grape to glass in the Dundee Hills in beautiful fashion. Their young Single Block Series from the remarkable 2014 vintage features four two-barrel lots of stunning juice, and Block 1 showcases Pommard on its own roots — a brave endeavor, indeed – that stems from their first 1990 planting. Its easterly aspect makes it the final block to be harvested. Lightly oaked, it offers blueberry and cola aromas that lead to sweet cherry and cranberry-rhubarb flavors backed by juicy red currant and a long finish of watermelon Jolly Rancher. These wines are not distributed and offered only at the winery.
