Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
This younger Pinot with juicy acidity pairs nicely with lamb stew, pancetta, grilled skirt steak, duck, or classic chicken with rosemary and thyme. For dessert, chocolate covered strawberries, or cherry pie.
Production Notes
The J-Block, also known as Jordan Block, is named after the middle daughter of the winemaker. It sits on 4 estate acres facing south at a steeper, higher slope and gets more benefit from the coastal breeze each afternoon.
Winemaker Notes
A relatively mild and dry winter set the stage for a 2018 growing season that was highlighted by a cool spring, a summer with low heat stress but high droughts, and a glorious October. The moderately cool spring led to a late start to the growing season with an average bud break in April. Youngberg Hill produced fruit that was fully ripe, with moderate alcohol and juicy acid, which made for intense, luscious wines.
