Winter’s Hill Winery 2014 Block 10 Estate Single Block Series Pinot Noir, Dundee Hills, $49

By on September 8, 2017

The Gladhart family devoted Block 10 of its Pinot Noir plantings to the Pommard clone, and it has found a home at the highest elevations of its Dundee Hills holdings, topping out at 700 feet. Harvest came Sept. 20, and one of the two barrels were whole-cluster fermented. It’s a basket of cherries that includes complexity of cigar box, mint and cocoa powder, presented within the context of a lighter, fun and juicy boysenberry structure. Suggested pairings include this recipe for Halibut Fish Skillet.
