93+ Pale to medium deep ruby-purple in color, the 2011 Block 3 Pinot Noir has earthy, yeasty, baking bread overtones that envelop a core of red plums, mulberries and pomegranate with hints of milk chocolate and tree bark... 93+ Pale to medium deep ruby-purple in color, the 2011 Block 3 Pinot Noir has earthy, yeasty, baking bread overtones that envelop a core of red plums, mulberries and pomegranate with hints of milk chocolate and tree bark. Medium-bodied, it is quite structured in the mouth, with crisp acid, a medium level of grainy tannins and a long, earthy finish. It needs a year or two of aging and will drink to 2020+. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown

Supple and refined, with a core of focused and juicy cherry and strawberry flavors, showing tremendous power and focus. Delivers wave after wave of spice, floral, mineral and herb details, never losing intensity. Drink...

92+ Medium red. Musky dark raspberry, wild herbs and smoke on the nose. Big, plush and deep; the broadest of these 2011 pinots but not yet showing its fruit on the palate. Darker in character than the foregoing samples... 92+ Medium red. Musky dark raspberry, wild herbs and smoke on the nose. Big, plush and deep; the broadest of these 2011 pinots but not yet showing its fruit on the palate. Darker in character than the foregoing samples and structured to evolve slowly in bottle. Finishes with substantial dusty tannins and excellent length.

It has a gentle sophistication, clean, refined and well suited to several years of development in the cellar.

Here too there is lovely aromatic complexity to the very fresh red pinot fruit and spice aromas that exhibit the barest hint of vegetal character.

Here too there is lovely aromatic complexity to the very fresh red pinot fruit and spice aromas that exhibit the barest hint of vegetal character. There is a beguiling mouth feel to the cool and admirably pure middle weight flavors that possess a lilting mouth feel thanks to the well-integrated structure on the dusty, lacy and well-balanced finish. Good stuff.

Perfumed aromas of blueberries, raspberries and flowers follow through to a full body, with fine tannins and a fresh finish. Firm and silky. A little lean. Drink now or hold.
