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.

Tasting Notes
Medium violet in color. The nose is multidimensional with notes of bing cherry, currant, and the signature note of orange zest and bergamot. There is also a floral component that is reminiscent of dried roses and tea leaves, all the while there is a background depth and spice that is sure to gain ground in coming years. The palate starts silky and smooth, then transitions to a weightly midpalate. The finish is bright, edgy, and lively.
Vintage Notes
The 2021 Oregon harvest will be one to remember. It was dry with heat spikes throughout the summer. Fortunately, the grapes were unaffected by the historical “Heat Dome” that descended upon us in June. The fruit was beautiful and balanced, with generous aromatics.
