The 2016 Block Nine Pinot is beautifully long and rich in ripe cherry and berry flavors. The aromas exhibit generous bright fruit with a mix of strawberry, violets, plum, tea, and a hint of clove. Flavorful and silky in the mouth with good body, this wine is seductive showing wild cherries and a hint of sandalwood to complete its complex finish. The 2016 growing season was generous in length and consistent temperatures. Flavors were strong at harvest and the winemaker thinks 2016 will prove to be a terrific vintage.
