2015 Winter’s Hill Block 10 Single Block Series Whole Cluster Dundee Hills Pinot Noir

14.2% alc., 98 cases, $49. 100% whole cluster fermented. · Moderate garnet color in the glass. Dramatic aromatics that excite including scents of black cherry, black raspberry, rose petal and exotic spices. My notes say, “Oh-man!” Equally seductive on the palate, with mid weight unctuous flavors of black cherry and black raspberry immersed in exotic spices. Noticeably different texturally from the 100% de-stemmed version of this wine with meaty, fine-grain tannins that seem to caress and elevate the fruit. A very long, flavorful and juicy finish completes the picture. A connoisseur’s wine. Score: 95. Reviewed January 6, 2018
