Tyler 2018 Dierberg Vineyard Block 5 Pinot Noir
A unique parcel, and separate from the rest of the Dierberg Vineyard, Block 5 sits perched on the eastern edge of the property, just over a small creek looking down on the Santa Maria River. As you cross this creek, the soils change hue to a slightly more iron infuzed clay loam, with gravel a few feet beneath. The 2018 is beautifully floral along with notes of clay and wet earth. Characterized by its juicy red core and refined structure, this is the most impressive and powerful Dierberg Block 5 bottling to date.
