“The 2013 Pinot Noir Basalt Block was picked at just 1.5-ton per acre from 26-27 September and on 3 October, matured for 12 months in 25% new French oak. It offers blackberry and bilberry on the nose, touches of crushed violet and later blackcurrant pastilles emerging. The palate has a sharp seam of acidity, very minerally and stony in style, masculine for a Pinot Noir with an almost saturnine finish that lingers long in the mouth. Saline and surly (in an attractive way), cellar this enigmatic Pinot Noir for a couple of years.”

“Robert Brittan is an influential winemaker, consulting for a number of estates as well as producing his own label. I have to say I really admire the style of these wines that veers towards black rather than red fruit: mineral-driven and more detailed than many of their Oregon peers. They come highly recommended, especially at these prices, which I am sure that others would retail for double.” — Neal Martin
