(2009 Vintage) The 2009 Pinot Noir West Block is an exotic wine bursting with dark red cherries, kirsch, hard candy, flowers, licorice and spices. There is plenty of energy, tension and supporting structure to balance some of the wine’s more overt, explosive leanings. The finesse of the 2009 vintage comes across nicely on the polished finish.
