2018 Block 10 Pinot Noir
Our Block 10 at Trovato Vineyard in Yamhill is a 2-acre vineyard block exclusively planted with the Pommard clone of Pinot Noir. One of the original clones used by Oregon wine pioneers in the 70’s, Pommard was widely planted in Burgundy and known there for creating wines of distinction and excellence. At Furioso, we thought it would be interesting for our members to have this unique opportunity to get intimate with a clone that started the international reputation of Oregon Pinot Noir. With the very first release of our Block 10, we are delivering a gutsy Pinot Noir draped in a deep velvet color. The nose is very lifted with rich notes of dark cherries, mocha, dry herbs, graphite, and hints of cinnamon. In the mouth, the wine exhibits a firm structure framed by a juicy acidity. This Pinot Noir has great aging potential and will benefit from being decanted in its youth. We think this wine would pair beautifully with a traditional Beef Bourguignon.
