Wow. Burgundy, ladies and gentlemen. Light, but powerful. Menthol, dirty raspberries and birchwood. Awesome acidity on the palate...nothing extracted about this. All the red fruits. Potpourri. Lavender and red flowers. The aromas are incredible.

Another example of why 2011 Pinots are my favorite. Super expressive nose of cranberry, orange zest and thyme. Nice acidity and lingering finish.

Big and ripe for a Swan, but has some balancing pomegranate and cranberry tartness that lifts it up a little. Better with pork tinga that muted a bit of the heat.

Really nicely aged Pinot 2012. Well balanced acid and tanins. Notes of raspberry and tobacco. Excellent value.

Wow, this wine knocked our socks off. Light but complex, some tart fruit with a touch of earthiness. A really wonderful spectrum of flavor and texture as it passed through a sip.

Light turbidity, oranging ruby.
Bright initial red fruit , currant, pomegranate, cranberry, rhubarb nose. Oak dominates as it was opened for a couple hours, next day fruit returned. Perfectly balanced palate. Except for the color, which is wholly superficial, the sine may age another 10 years. Lovely juice!

Cranberry, citrus, potting soil, woody herbs, menthol. Juicy, light, acidic. Doing a side by side tasting with Great Oak Vineyard
