93 points Wine AdvocateThe 2018 Pinot Noir Bloom's Field has a medium ruby color and a nose of raspberries and blackberries with touches of dried flowers and iron. The palate is silky, perfumed and light on its feet, with loads of nuanced flavor layers and a long, ethereal finish.
It could be easy to let the 2018 Bloom’s Field unfettered expression of pleasure and joy overshadow its profundity. But to consider it a seamless marriage of fruit, flower, and mineral sensations is to realize a great Pinot Noir vineyard coming into its own. The ebullience of the ripe red fruit is almost overwhelming, as cranberry and cherry notes take you to the apex of sunny ripeness without becoming jammy. Rich floral tones lift the nose and merge with the leafy, peppery charge of whole cluster fermentation. The lushness doesn’t sprawl, though, as the wine’s mineral aspect—suggested by aromas reminiscent of rock dust or dried river beds—keeps it firm, as does the structure applied by incisive acidity and ordered, well- drawn tannins. The compactness of the wine’s structure and flavor implies a beautiful evolution in the bottle, as the wine’s gifts continue to unfold. - Winery Notes
Vineyard: Alongside Memorious downslope, Bloom’s Field spans the southwest-facing hillside that delineates the windward edge of our domaine. The Monterey Shale bedrock of Memorious is prevalent here, too, however the clay top soils of Bloom’s Field are lighter in color and texture, particularly as the vineyard climbs the slope. Here, our heritage selections of Pinot Noir - Calera, Swan, and Mount Eden - are planted in alternating rows, providing an elucidating way to observe communication across a genetically diverse vineyard.
Whole cluster fermentation with native yeasts in open concrete tanks. 14 Months in 20% new / Ermitage french oak. 500 cases made. 13.5% alcohol
