Donelan Tripps Block Pinot Noir Mendocino 2013

  • Country USA
  • ABV 14.6%
  • Case size 12 / 75cl
  • On the nose, cranberry, black cherry, and orange peel rise to the foreground in a new way, yet the classic forest floor and baking-spice components we love from this vineyard add to its background, making the nose complex and dynamic.
  • Barrel aging 17 months
  • new French oak produces an intoxicating spice-box/angostura bitters nose reminiscent of a Manhattan that weds magically with the inherent spicy fruit from this vineyard.
  • "The 2013 Pinot Noir Tripp’s Block comes from the Perli Vineyard in the Mendocino Ridge. This is based on Dijon clones 667 and 777. It spends 18 months in oak, and the precentage of new oak is about 30%. A slightly larger-scaled, more savory wine than the Two Brothers, the wine exhibits a deep plum/ruby color and notes of sweet black cherry and berry fruit along with some underbrush and forest floor. The lovely texture is savory, round, juicy and very pure." 91 Points Robert M Parker, The Wine Advocate, 2016-2026

 

On the nose, cranberry, black cherry, and orange peel rise to the foreground in a new way, yet the classic forest floor and baking-spice components we love from this vineyard add to its background, making the nose complex and dynamic. Barrel Aging 17 months new French oak produces an intoxicating spice-box/angostura bitters nose reminiscent of a Manhattan that weds magically with the inherent spicy fruit from this vineyard.  Simply put, they think wine should taste great and work with every vintage and every grape, to achieve this goal, always recognising that next year will bring another step on the road.They believe that the best wines are not made but discovered and take pride in harnessing the greatest qualities and natural variations in a vineyard and a variety.

Winery

Founded by Joe Donelan, who now runs the business alongside his sons Cushing and Tripp, Donelan is a small, boutique Sonoma winery producing Syrah, Grenache, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Roussanne and Viognier. Producing just 8,000 cases per year they prize quality over all other factors. They are becoming known for their exceptionally small-release bottlings of vinous experimentations: clonal varietals, site-specific variations, and the like. This factor has turned them from being a first-class winery into also being internationally recognised for leading this type of small-batch production.

They believe that the best wines are not made but discovered and take pride in harnessing the greatest qualities and natural variations in a vineyard and a variety. The aromatics remain fresh and youthful, yet below the surface lies mystery and complexity – herb-encrusted lamb, graphite, freshly-cut lavender, and cherry liqueur. The palate of the wine starts with such a distinct sensation, like the first spoonful of chocolate mousse, followed by a complex and structured mid-palate that cradles a very full and compelling finish.
