2019 Kiser Vineyard Pinot Noir, Lower Block
6 bottle limit
The Kiser Vineyard Pinot Noirs are a fascinating study on variations of a theme. All are specifically Kiser and more alike when compared to other vineyards. However, when tasted as a set, they are all distinctive among themselves, each showcasing a different expression.
2019 Kiser Vineyard, Lower Block, Pinot Noir // A deep and dank expression of Pinot Noir, showing off a mix a black fruit and spice with hints of blood orange zest. This might be the best Kiser Lower ever.
The lower block at Kiser is one of the coolest vineyards in all of Anderson Valley. Cool air sinks there and thus we pick the lower anywhere from two weeks to one month later than the upper block. The clone here is pure 115 and the soil is slightly the deeper though still thin. The resulting wines are deep, darker and full of intensity. These will age gracefully for 20 years or more in a cool cellar. We can't wait to watch it evolve.
