Joseph Swan Trenton Estate Vineyard Pentagon Pinot Noir 2016
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Russian River Valley|
This one was only produced in one other year - 1997 - when it met the criteria for a separate bottling. · Moderately light garnet color in the glass. Seductive aromas of cherry, rose petal, spice box and sandy loam. The wine creates quite an impression on entry with a jubilee of well-spiced black cherry flavor. Very soft like the hair of an angel, with great purity of fruit flavor. Highly congenial at this age with immersed tannins and an extremely generous and lengthy finish. The wine packs plenty of flavor but leans more toward elegance than power. My notes say, “Fantastic!.” This is one of those wines you can still taste and remember where you drank it years later. My highest scoring Pinot Noir ever!
