2013 Brittan Vineyards Cygnus Block Pinot noir

2013 Brittan Vineyards Cygnus Block Pinot noir

The inaugural release of the 2013 Cygnus Block Pinot noir. Planted in lieu of an engagment ring for Ellen, the Cygnus block is planted to the Swan selection, a unique clone of Pinot noir introduced into California from Burgundy in the 1800s.

Tasting notes

The wine is more red fruit foward than the typical brooding dark fruit that accompanies the Basalt and Gestalt pinots. The Cygnus emits aromas of red raspberry that float above notes of rose petal and freshly cracked black pepper while still beaming with a core of clarity that marks a Brittan pinot.  The palate is lush and illuminating with ripe strawberry, plum skin and dusted sage.
