9th Annual Pinot Noir Shootout

We are pleased to announce that the 2008 Youngberg Hill Pinot Noir Jordan received a Silver Medal at this years Pinot Noir Shootout in California. We are very excited as this year’s competition had over 350 entries and it is held on California’s home turf.

The Jordan Block sits on 4 estate acres facing South East at a steeper slope than the Natasha and getting more benefit from the coastal breeze each afternoon.  A wine with burgundian character and substance, the fruit from this block is especially age worthy. This wine will be at its best from 2011 to 2025.

Dark cherry, blackberries, currant and blue plum along with brown sugar, cassis, and hints of black pepper and smoke lead s to an elegant and opulent palate with flavors of rich blueberries fresh and mineral notes. The finish is lush with a full and round texture.

A fuller bodied Pinot with nicely balanced  acidity and tannins makes this wine very food friendly going magically with any red meat and wild mushroom dishes.
