Brittan Vineyards Basalt Block Pinot Noir 2012

$47.95

Taut, tart and vividly expressive, bursting with red berry flavors and overtones of spice and tomato leaf. The finish persists with relish and clear minerality. Needs time to settle, but has plenty to offer. Best from 2016 through 2022. 775 cases made Wine Spectator

Gorgeous, perfume, coffee and anise aromas. Intense blackberry, black cherry, and black tea flavors, great structure. This wine will be even better in a decade.

Very dark fruited but with loads of acidity. The nose is badass.

A monster. Tar, herbs, intense briary fruit. Kind of a mind fuck. #sailormouth #sorrynotsorry

Serious stuff. Big, rich, tannic, fruit bomb. A crowd pleaser for sure. People couldn't keep their hands off this #wine

I admit to drinking a lot of this producer. I have all vintages from 2010 but not before. It’s a great OR pinot. I strongly suggest buying some directly from the winery. BUT, a number of the 2012 corks I’ve pulled have been soaked almost all the way thru. I’ve told the winery. I have not seen it from other vintages.

Arrested development. Something was a-rye here with this 1.5 L. Sadly never opened up. Most be an exception

2012. A bit more oak than I recalled from the last bottle. More fruit than funk. But still a favorite from OR.
