2017 Lee Vineyard, Swan Clone Pinot Noir
Appellation: Carneros, Napa
Terroir: Haire clay loam soil; exposure to the Petaluma wind gap and San Pablo Bay airstreams, creating temperate growing conditions.
Lee Vineyard’s Swan Clone bottling features heady aromatics offset by luscious but high-toned fruit in this crowd pleaser.
Red cherry, currant, and violet aromatics are prominent. Satisfying on the palate while bright plum and cherry notes blend to a refreshingly zesty finish. Ready to drink and with proper storage could age for seven to ten years.
