The Watershed Block Pinot Noir comes from fruit harvested off of a section of the vineyard planted by founders Bill and Susan Sokol Blosser in the early 70s. Although replanted in 2006/2009 on rootstock, cuttings from fruiting vines were taken from the original plantings and grafted onto rootstock for the replant. The original section of the Estate vineyard has a diversity of clones present: Wadenswil 2A & Pommard UCD4. This is the debut vintage of theWatershed Block Pinot Noir since replanting.The fruit is harvested from our highest elevation site on the North side of Watershed Block.
Our 2015 Watershed Block Pinot Noir exhibits aromas of fresh soil and tart cherries, intense fresh red fruits on the palate with a cinnamon toast finish.
