Brittan Vineyards Pinot Noir Mcminnville Basalt Block 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

There are 800 cases of the medium ruby red 2009 Pinot Noir Basalt Block. It went through malolactic fermentation in barrel followed by 9 months of aging in 28% new French oak. Intense spice notes (especially allspice), violets, black cherry, and black raspberry aromas inform the nose of an impeccably balanced, elegant, firm, lengthy Pinot with a vibrant acid backbone. The tension in this wine makes it atypical (but superior) to the easy-going personalities of the vast majority of 2009 Pinots. 92 pointsRobert Parker's Wine Advocate
