Krista’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. Krista’s Block is named after the family’s only red-headed daughter. 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. Krista’s Block is planted on a steeper, rockier south-facing slope that is exposed to the cold Ocean winds coming from the west.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Medium plum skin purple in color. The nose is spicy with notes of dark fruits and bergamot orange. The palate bursts with fruit sweetness on the attack, and then gives way to structured and fine grained tannins that give the wine focus.
Vintage Notes
The 2017 vintage was cool and long, and the wines are representative of the classic Oregon style.
