Saint Clair 2010 Pioneer Block 22 Barn Block Pinot Noir (Marlborough)

Editors' Choice

Saint Clair's Pioneer Block wines are always worth trying for their expressions of Marlborough's subregional characters. This one, from deep clay soils at the foot of the Dry Hills, features a bold cherry aroma and flavor, backed by ample vanilla and baking spice notes. It's big and slightly chunky in style, but it seems likely to smooth out over the next 12 months as the dusty tannins subside. Joe Czerwinski
