This is one of the best Pinots of the 2015 Okanagan vintage. When I first tasted this wine, I was wide-eyed with admiration, and bought as much as I could on the spot. This Old Block has so much pure Pinot Noir character, it is simply nuts. Juicy cherry, uplifting herbal notes, just a nuance of oak, and a proper woodsy, earthy, gutsiness that is the hallmark of proper Pinot. Winemaker Chris Carson, always respectful of the fruit, lets the Old Block ferment wildly and fairly warmly, does a little gentle hand-plunging, before popping the wine into French oak casks (less that an quarter are new) for about a year. Mid weight, oozing finesse and floral exoticism, it is offers massive delight now, but will develop more sous bois complexity over the next few years. The ‘Old Block’ is a 1-acre section of Meyer’s McLean Creek estate steep, sun-drenched vineyard, and these are the original plantings from 1994. Complete enough to delight without food, the Old Block will complement a garlicky braised lamb shoulder with ease, and the supple tannins will not overwhelm a well-seared salmon fillet.
