"The 2017 Pinot Noir SWK Vineyard is rich, heady and bursting at the seams with personality. Black cherry, menthol, licorice, plum, espresso, lavender and savory herbs infuse the 2017 with striking layers of complexity and sheer character. Poor soils give naturally low yields and a wine with serious concentration as well as power. Statuesque and towering, the 2017 is a drop-dead gorgeous beauty, but it needs time to be at its best."

Winery Notes:
High-pitched aromas of red currants, rose petal, and crushed stone. A finely-etched wine with a chiseled, penetrating quality; a very transparent and site-specific pinot noir, with intense red fruit flavors marked by a discreet element of sea salt. Finishes savory and very long with layers of mineral-rich red fruit and earth tones. - SK
