Robert Parker 95+ 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: "The 2016 Pinot Noir Gestalt Block, aged 12 months in 30% new French oak, has a medium ruby-purple color and is slow to open on the nose. With time, it offers crushed stone, grapefruit peel, potpourri, blueberry and floral nuances over a core of red currant, cranberry and red cherries. The palate is medium-bodied and absolutely explodes with juicy, bitters-laced red fruits. It has a firm, very finely grained frame and mouthwatering acidity on the long, layered finish that begs you to take another sip. Yowza! This will benefit from another couple of years in bottle. 350 cases produced."
