Wine of the Month Under $20: Block 9 Pinot Noir

Block Nine Wine

For October 2013 my sure fire wine recommendation is the nearly perfect Block Nine 2012 Pinot Noir from the small production winery, Caiden’s Vineyard.  Many vineyards make several varieties of wine, perhaps dispersing their focus, not Caiden’s.  Pinot Noir is all they make, therefore allowing them to ensure “getting it right.” The aromas are fruity with a mix of strawberry, violets, dark cherry and a hint of toasted French oak to complete its classy finish.

Cost?  I paid $18.00 at the Barryville Bottle in Barryville, New York. I paired it with our Autumn pig roast which included my wild rice, bacon & edamame salad, roasted Brussels sprouts and cheesy balls. This wine is light yet has a distinct personality. Bravo!
