Winemaker's Notes:

#46 WE Top 100 Cellar Selections 2012 "The fourth vintage for Brittan's elegant Basalt Block Pinot Noir is arguably the finest yet. Tangy and pure, with an immaculate, expressive cherry flavor, it has great purity, with great depth of flavor and vivid minerality. It's a beautifully crafted wine, sure to continue to improve over a decade or more...94" WE 8/12 "The Brittan 2009 Pinot Noir Basalt Block smells, in its own way, no less intriguing nor, metaphorically-speaking, “mineral” than its successors from cooler 2010, displaying scents of ocean breeze replete with iodine and kelp wreathed in bittersweet floral perfume and allied to lusciously ripe yet tartly-fresh purple plum, cherry, and blackberry, which are highly piquantly-tinged with their pits and seeds. Despite harboring around 14% alcohol, this displays a remarkable sense of levity to accompany its vibrant, downright vibratory intensity. It’s hard for me to imagine it remaining riveting for any less than another dozen years...94" WA 8/12 "Vivid ruby-red.
