Food Pairings for Joseph Swan Vineyards Pinot Noir Russian River Valley Great Oak Vineyard
Typical deep, complex red fruit aromas with lots of spice and a hint of earth. In the mouth it is quite tight although also quite rich. The flavors echo the aromas. There is a bit of youthful, rounded tannin and nice acidity framing the rich fruit. The oak, while a bit noticeable to me at the moment is nicely integrated and should recede further into the background over the next year or so. While very enjoyable now, it is still painfully young. I would advise holding it for a few years to allow it to soften and show its full potential. I would be shocked if this wine does not have a long and vibrant life ahead of it
