James Suckling 96 points.
A blend of de-classified Original Vineyard and Block K pinot noir, aimed at a more direct, youthful style. The nose has super clear red cherries, dark cherries and raspberries with a very complex, spicy edge that is so deeply wrapped into the fruit. Some rose-like florals, too. Wow. The palate has an elegantly juicy feel with a smooth, pastry-like tannin texture. Layered and succulent. Such pristine red to dark-cherry flavors. JS.

The Bindi Dixon Pinot Noir is based upon declassified grapes from the Original Vineyard planted in 1988 and grapes from the new Block K, planted in 2001. The ideal of this wine is to produce a delicious, perfumed, spicy harmonious, textured wine that is not as intense, complex nor ageworthy as our individual vineyard wines. Even when the outstanding Block K vines are older we will continue to declassify sections or barrels from each vineyard and produce this wine.

The wine is fermented the same way as our other Pinot Noirs in that it is ostensibly 100% de-stemmed and gently worked in small open vats. The wine spends 11 months in French barrels, of which about 10-15% is new.

Production varies from 500-700 dozen per vintage.

This wine was formerly called Bindi Composition Pinot Noir.
