91 points-PinotFile

Planted to Wädenswil selection of Pinot Noir. The 2015 vintage is only the 2nd time we have bottled a wine made of 100% Wädenswil. The nose highlights plum, marionberry, spices and a hint of cocoa nibs that follows on the palate with a light medium body with flavors of dark berry and spice. The wine finishes with mild tannins and savory earthiness. Only 98 cases produced.

Block 8 is a warm and steep block planted to Wädenswil clone. Only second time winery has bottled 100% Wädenswil wine. · Moderately light garnet color in the glass. The nose starts out quite savory with aromas of bramble and dried herbs, transforming over time in the glass to a predominance of black cherry, wild strawberry, spice and cola aromas. Light to mid weight flavors of spiced red cherry and strawberry with an earthy thread and the right touch of oak. Nice harmony, with a deep cherry finish. This wine grows on you over time. Score: 91” PinotFile, January 2018.

"Block 8 is pure Wädenswil clone. This is exceptionally aromatic, with bramble and underbrush prominent. Light strawberry fruit comes up with hints of sassafras and drying tannins. It's an interesting component but would be even better in a blend." Wine Enthusiast, Paul Gregutt, June 2017
