JOSEPH SWAN PINOT NOIR, TRENTON ESTATE VINEYARD, RUSSIAN RIVER VALLEY 2014
NVWE Notes: If a legendary vineyard, the Trenton has not always been consistent, only now and then scaling the peaks: but the low yielding 2014 crop has produced a beauty. The nose delivers a spicy, sharply focused mix of sour red cherry, pomegranate, red boysenberry, red plum tart, red current, orange zest, cinnamon, mulling-spice and crushed rock scents. It has terrific fruit energy and sharp mineral undertones in the mouth, where a sinewy mouth-feel helps focus concentrated flavors that are a gripping, long-lingering mirror of the aromas. Delicious now with seared duck breast, it will grow ever more impressive and food-worthy over the next five years and beyond. 213 cases made.
The 2014 Pinot Noir Trenton Estate Vineyard has a pale to medium ruby-purple color and expressive cranberry, cherry cordial and violets nose with touches of dusty earth, mossy bark and sage. Light to medium-bodied, the palate sports a great intensity of cranberry and earthy notes, structured by firm, chewy tannins and lively acidity, finishing long. Drink Date 2017 - 2022.

Earthy and smooth, this is a light, crisply ripe wine. It offers a delicate layering of baked raspberry, citrus and cardamom spice. Virginie Boone 9/1/2017
