By specific measure, this is the 20th bottling of Block 1B bottling from Balcombe Vineyard. That does pre-date the inception of PGC, but that only goes to show that this vineyard has stayed with us over the course of two wineries and continues to prove its remarkable consistency every year. Block 1B is a small block that produces only around 8 barrels per year and is the most popular wine we make each vintage. This wine, as always, is dense and burly with surprising power and grip to it for a Dundee Hills wine. Its youthful power serves this bottling well. A recently tasted bottle of the 1998 vintage was incredible! Extremely powerful and distinctly structured, this is a wine for the long term. Due to its long history and limited production, this wine is offered on futures only to Club Members.
