Robert Parker 94+ 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 in color, the 2015 Pinot Noir Gestalt Block is youthfully shy on the nose, opening out to aromas of baked red cherry, cranberry sauce, black cherry and blackberry with nuances of fresh tobacco, forest floor, tree bark, toasted coconut and blue fruit preserves-there are lots of layers here. Medium-bodied, it packs in the black, red and blue fruits in the mouth with tons of spicy and earthy accents and some baking spice coming through. It's structured with firm, wonderfully grainy tannins and juicy acidity to counter the density of fruit/earth/spice. This has the substance to blossom beautifully over the next 2-3 years.
