(2014 Vintage) Our family started Block Nine in response to changes in the Pinot Noir market. Demand for moderately priced Pinot Noir has spiked over the last few years. Large, mass marketed brands brought most of the Pinot to the market leaving consumers with few choices of smaller production Pinot Noir from California.
sweeter Pinot than I prefer. not the Russian River I prefer
light burgundy hue, soft and sweet... reminiscent of a rose
Smooth with a hint of spice. Nice finish.
a touch sweet but with a lot of acid.
easy. drinking, great bouquet
Warm. Not bitter or sour.
