2015 Winter’s Hill Block 8 Single Block Series Dundee Hills Pinot Noir

13.6% alc., 98 cases, $49. Block 8 is a warm and steep block planted to Wädenswil clone. Only second time winery has bottled 100% Wädenswil wine. · Moderately light garnet color in the glass. The nose starts out quite savory with aromas of bramble and dried herbs, transforming over time in the glass to a predominance of black cherry, wild strawberry, spice and cola aromas. Light to mid weight flavors of spiced red cherry and strawberry with an earthy thread and the right touch of oak. Nice harmony, with a deep cherry finish. This wine grows on you over time. Score: 91.
