2019 Brick Mortar 'Cougar Rock' Pinot Noir
The 2019 Cougar Rock Vineyard Pinot Noir exudes aromas of ripe cherry, red apple and hints of graphite and dried fennel. Cougar Rock is always our most smooth and silky Pinot and most delicate in color which we attribute to the large amount of calcarious chalky rocks that are interspersed throughout the block. The mineral tones from the volcanic soil are apparent, intertwined with a dusty earthiness, rose petals; balanced by a fresh vibrant core and smooth elegant tannins. This wine shines in its youth and we expect it to continue to improve for the next 8-15 years.
