Medium ruby in color, the 2017 Pinot Noir Block M has a layered nose with scents of orange oil, tree bark, amaro and peppered meats with sliced blueberries, rhubarb, cranberry, powdered strawberry, black cherries and dried violet—this offers great layering of nuanced aromas. It's medium-bodied and quietly intense in the mouth with loads of restrained flavor layers, juicy acidity and fine, grainy tannins, finishing long on a saline note. Yes! 347 cases were made.
