Spectacular Pinot Noir from a block of the Arrendel Vineyard in Green Valley. Easily the best Hailey's Block I've tasted, and I'd be hard pressed to say it's much inferior to the even higher-end Arrendel itself. Complex, compelling nose of blueberry, dark raspberry, cherry pie in the oven, sweet Asian spice. Every sniff and every mouthful provides a different set of pleasures. Seamless, mouth-coating texture, but completely in harmony. Long, savory finish. - HK 2017-11-23
