2018 Lansdale Pinot Noir
On the palate, this is concentrated and ripe, with spiced plum and blackberry fruit and earthy, floral-violet, toasty oak notes. Deep yet layered, with smooth, silky, velvety tannins that lead to a long, heavenly finish. Dark, ripe yet silky and smooth.
This wine is exclusively from Q-block and is 100% Calera clone. With a south-facing exposure, this block reaches an elevation of 1,600 ft. making it the highest block on the estate.
“The wine has an intense, dark hue with overt black and blue tones in the bouquet. Aromas of black cherry, blueberry, sagebrush and baking spices exude from the glass. These notes stay true on the palate as flavors of blackberry, forest floor, cherry pit and oak carry through. Replete with acidity, the tannins are firm with an expansive attack that will allow this wine to age in the cellar.”
