Our 2017 Knudsen Vineyards Pinot Noir is a blend of Dijon clone 777 from Block 3 and Dijon clone 667 grapes from Block 4. We planted Block 3, at ~700 feet elevation, almost 20-years ago and this Block reliably produces some of our “best” wine with fragrant red berry aromas and flavor, great structure and full mouthfeel. The grapes from Block 4 are younger, planted in 2012, and we were impressed by the freshness and light red berry aroma, some cherry and raspberry, of this wine. The two together offer more than the sum of the parts. The wine was aged 16 months in 20% new oak barrels prior to bottling. This is a beautifully textured, fresh fruited and drinkable wine which will age well for 5 – 10 years.
