Robert Parker 93+ Points
Robert Brittan spend 14 years making wine at Stag's Leap Wine Cellars, so he is quite comfortable producing high-end wines. Since his Oregon debut with the 2009 vintage, his Oregon pinots have quickly climbed to the top shelf, taking their place among the wines from the best producers.
From Robert Parker: "Pale to medium ruby-purple colored, the 2015 Pinot Noir Basalt Block is youthfully coiled and shy, giving up notions of crushed red and black cherry, licorice, cardamom, forest floor and hints of rose petal and violet—this has plenty of lurking layers. The palate is medium-bodied and concentrated with firm, very finely grained tannins and great freshness to lift the density of flavor on the long mineral finish. Give this time in bottle—it’s going to be great."
