BRITTAN VINEYARDS Pinot Noir, McMinnville ‘Basalt Block’ 2019

<div class="uk-panel uk-panel-box uk-panel-box-secondary">The 2019 Basalt Block from Brittan Vineyards is a bit different from the 2018 vintage. Clones of 777, 667, Pommard, and 115 age together in 18% new French oak for 12 months. Still a bit tight, it feels a touch closed at the moment, but that’s typical for a lot of wines in this vintage. Lovely notes of black cherry, blue raspberry candy, graphite shavings, Naval orange flesh, dried cedary herbs, and toasted walnut shells pop from the glass. Acidity checks in on the high side, the tannins are crunchy elevated, and it finishes rich and full bodied. Best in 2024. Just 295 cases produced.</div>
