Jeffrey’s Block is one part of a wine duo that always stirs up some sibling rivalry. The two wines are named Jeffery’s Block and Krista’s Block, and they show how a small change in location (a mere 500 ft) can completely change the outcome of a wine. Jeffrey’s Block is our oldest block and is named after owners Jon & Kathy Lauer’s oldest son. Both blocks are planted to the same clones of Pinot. The wines are vinified with native yeasts in identical fermentation vessels, and both wines are aged in duplicate barrel selections. Jeffrey’s Block is located on gradual south-east facing slope on rich volcanic soil.

Tasting Notes
Medium garnet in color. Initially, the nose is dominated by bold primary fruit aromas of dark dried cherry; once swirled the layers of complexity begin to reveal themselves with dark cocoa, coffee, and a rich earthiness layered throughout. The attack is bursting with sweet dark fruit, and the initial midpalate is smooth and warm. The finish is dynamic, with a more stacked tannin structure that supports and adds persistence and length
Vintage Notes
The 2015 vintage marked another extraordinary growing season. Warm weather prevailed throughout the entire season, resulting in concentrated and balanced fruit. We were able to harvest our red grapes at the balance point of having full flavors and bright acidity, all without fear of autumn rains
