2016 Jeffrey's Block Pinot Noir

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
Sourced from the oldest section of the vineyard and aged in 20% new French oak, this approachable wine is high-toned, with plush marionberry and cherry pie fruit flavors. It’s instantly appealing, with a smooth midpalate and highlights of cherry tobacco and sandalwood. A little bit of a burn slightly attenuates the finish.
Vintage Notes
The 2016 vintage was the earliest spring on record. To our great relief, the rest of the season proved to be moderate and well-paced. The wines show concentration and finesse of a cooler and later ripening vintage.
