Tasting Notes: The 2015 Basalt Block Pinot noir offers a broad expression of our estate vineyard. On the nose, notes of Raspberry, Marionberry, Blackberry and herbal tea lead to an intriguing palate of Brambleberry and tobacco. A delightful acid core keeps this wine bright with fruit and light on the palate.

Robert Brittan left Stags Leap Winery in Napa after 16 years as Winemaker and Estate Manager to fulfill his dream of making Pinot Noir and Syrah from unique sites in cooler climates. His winemaking career began in his dorm room at Oregon State University, where he was a physics and philosophy major.

With 45 years of experience growing grapes and making wine, he brings a significant amount of viticultural and winemaking knowledge to Brittan Vineyards. He has always had a passion for Pinot Noir, and hopes that with the fruit from the Brittan estate vineyard in the foothills of the Coastal Range, he can bring a new voice to the McMinnville AVA, and help form the style and definition of Pinot Noir from this recently designated winegrowing region.
