Sporting a pale ruby color, the 2013 Tom's Block Pinot Noir has notes of fresh red currants and cranberries with hints of underbrush and dried thyme on the nose. Medium-bodied, the palate is open for business with has lovely elegance and freshness, if the finish is a little short and simple. Rating 87 - Drink by 2019, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (DEC/2015).
Winery Tasting Notes
Enticing wine reminiscent of a summer afternoon; dried hay, ripe brambles and berries, and sun warmed earth. Its charm is its accessibility, but underneath is a gently persuasive hand of minerality to maintain focus.
Tannin structure is elegant and fine. The oak handling and fruit ripeness are harmonious and the overall concept of the wine is vibrant, plush and attractive.
