Winemaker's Notes

Complex and enticingly aromatic, bursting with notes of raspberries, strawberry-rhubarb pie, plum and black cherries with traces of pine duff and lavender.

This wine is a blend from several vineyards and Pinot noir clones, each of which contributes something unique to the finished wine. The late-ripening Ferguson vineyard lends dark, intense fruit and tannins while the Giberti vineyard ripens earlier in a slightly warmer area of the valley.

Grapes are destemmed and go through native fermentation in open-top vats with hand punchdowns. The Giberti and Ferguson lots were blended after pressing, and were aged separately from the Swicegood lots until just before bottling.
