2014 Brittan "Estate - Gestalt Block" Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

SKU #1497645 95 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark The dark purple color is impressive with aromas of blackberries and blueberries galore. Yet there is restraint and tone to this young red with a fantastic texture and intensity on the finish. Always tight and toned. Inner quote mark (11/2016)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Pale to medium ruby-purple in color, the 2014 Pinot Noir Gestalt Block has a singular nose of crushed granite, violet and lilac over a core of blue fruit preserves and warm black cherries with notes of baking spice, dried leaves and salted licorice—still very tightly coiled. Medium-bodied and very silky in the mouth, it gives concentrated black and blue fruits with exotic spicy accents and a wicked line of crushed rock minerality. It’s framed with fine, grainy tannins and great freshness carrying the long, layered finish. This needs time in bottle. (EB) 93+ Inner quote mark (11/2018)

93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This black-fruited offering has the winery's signature stamp all over it, with a vein of herb and wet rock that slices through the aromas and into the palate. Tangy acids prop up the blackberry and black-cherry fruit, and suggest that this can age. Drink now through 2030 at least. (PG) Inner quote mark (12/2017)

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Dark red. Smoky dark berries, cherry cola and licorice pastille aromas pick up a suave floral accent in the glass. Pliant and seamless in texture; a core of minerality adds lift and focus to sappy blackberry and bitter cherry flavors. The smoke and floral notes come back steadily on a very long, penetrating finish that features dusty tannins and a late echo of sweet cola. (JR) Inner quote mark (12/2016)
