“This was a great vintage. Period. I will most likely never see another vintage like this in my life time.” – Winemaker Alex Sokol Blosser.
The season began with a cold winter and spring that brought a significant amount of rainfall, followed by the driest summer on record, making for clean fruit – possibly the cleanest ever seen in our vineyard. A vintage with an optimal growing season of long, warm summer days and cool nights. We started harvest early in October to keep the grapes from drying. Conditions during harvest were near-perfect with clear skies. These wines will taste delicious the moment they are released and still have cellar sitting potential.
Our 2012 Peach Tree Block Pinot Noir exhibits dried fruit and floral characteristics with an earthy core and medium acidity. As with all of our pinot noirs, the signature Jory soil terroir with its spicy mineral finish is well represented in this wine. This wine, and our 2012 vintage Pinot Noirs, are ready out the gate and worthy of lengthy aging.
