2015 Orin Swift Slander California Pinot Noir
Notes from the winemaker: Sitting in the glass as lucid ruby in color , bursting aromas of traditional, elegant Pinot Noir represented from classic strawberry, cherries and slight savory tones of lavender, thyme and sage to exotic Asian spice, hints of wet earth, chalk and smoky oak. Upon entry there is an overwhelming development of creme de caramel and the same red fruit flavors present on the nose. The wine transitions with subtle soft tannins, showing the sophisticated integration of balanced oak that finished with a creamy mouth feel. Overall the wine's surprising complexity characterizes this vintage of Slander with classic notes of Pinot Noir on the nose and New World boldness on the palate.
