CedarCreek Aspect Collection Block 2 Pinot Noir 2018

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaFrom the lower slopes of CedarCreek's home vineyard, Block 2 is planted to pinot clone 115 on glacial basal till with high clay content. The 2018 vintage has a subtle, lifted nose of dried dark cherries, smoky underbrush, and finely integrated oak after aging 14 months in French barriques (18%). The fruit comes across as muted with modest concentration, lacking the generosity we saw in the single clone bottlings from the same vintage, which were reviewed last year. Instead, the smoke is felt more here, especially on the finish, suggesting this is best enjoyed in the short term.Tasted: 27 September 2021Tasted by: Prices: BC 65.00 wine club member exclusive Producer: CedarCreek Estate WineryDistributors: Mark Anthony Wines and Spirits
