Add To Cart

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 plum skin in color. The aromatics are dark and compelling, with notes of earth and forest floor intertwining with dried cherry and rich spice. The palate is smooth on the attack, with lovely midpalate fruit persistence. The wine finishes with notes of dark chocolate and light spice.
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.
