Wine Enthusiast Review
Candied Bing cherry, raspberry and cherry blossom aromas show on the nose of this single-vineyard expression. The palate is lightweight and fresh, with flavors of cherries and raspberries that are lifted by accents of clove and mace.
This wine is seductive and complex with perfumy aromatics and a succulent mouthfeel, thanks in part to the Swan clone used in this Pinot Noir for the first time. Deeply concentrated aromas of ripe red cherry are accented by a touch of cinnamon stick and a stone component. Flavors of baked cherry, dark earth and a hint of leather are beautifully supported by a luscious texture and remarkably long finish. The wine's superbly well-balanced tannins and layers of complexity assure great cellar potential.
