2016 Pinot Noir, Swan

Winemaker's Notes

Among the many clones of Pinot Noir grown on our Los Carneros estate, there are a few acres of a prized, heirloom selection known among winemakers as the Swan clone. This clone embodies the feminine expression of Pinot Noir, with a lighter color, great verve and beauty on the palate. Our Swan Pinot Noir is quite supple, with pretty floral notes and lush red fruits against a delicate backdrop of soft tannins and fresh acidity.
