IT'S ALL IN THE DETAILS

Our Single Block program showcases the variation and nuanced expressions of the different vineyards on our Estate. Due to replanting our estate vineyard from 1998 to 2011, our single block production has ranged from limited to none each vintage. Now, mature and back in full production, we are pleased to share these limited production and distinct expressions of our extraordinary estate vineyard blocks in custom six-bottle wooden boxes.

Established on six acres of the Sokol Blosser estate that used to be an orchard of plum trees intended for prunes, our Orchard Block was given its name because, as Susan Sokol Blosser said, “Prune Block” just doesn’t sound as appealing. The block is planted to a single clone of Pinot Noir, Dijon 777 in the famous clay loam Jory soil.

Our 2013 Orchard Block Pinot Noir is brimming with flavors of orange zest, bing cherry and black pepper with a cocoa powder finish.

The 2013 Pinot Noir Orchard Block was barrel aged in French oak for 17 months (38% new wood). It has a ripe red cherry and cranberry-scented bouquet that is well defined, not as powerful as the 2012 last year, yet retaining commendable delineation and varietal expression. The palate is smooth on the entry, a very sensual Pinot Noir, almost lush in terms of texture with Morello cherry, crushed strawberry and red plum notes. But it’s the silkiness of this Pinot Noir that wins you over - just delicious.
