ORIGIN: US: California
TYPE/VARIETAL: Pinot Noir
PRODUCT: Block Nine Pinot Noir
Block Nine was created in response to changes in the Pinot Noir market. Demand for moderately priced Pinot Noir has spiked over the last few years. Large, mass-marketed brands brought most of the Pinot to the market, leaving consumers with few choices of smaller production Pinot Noir from California.
This is their focus. They make only Pinot Noir.
Block Nine Pinot Noir is beautifully lush and shows its elegance. Aromas exhibit bright fruit with a mix of strawberry, violets and dark cherry. Flavorful and silky in the mouth, with a good body, this wine finishes with a hint of sandalwood.
