2015 SWK Vineyard

Score: 98

Medium ruby-purple colored, the 2015 Pinot Noir SWK Vineyard is a little reticent to begin, slowly opening to allow glimpses at an incredible array of earth, mineral and savory characters—moss, loam and ceps—over a beautifully perfumed core of red cherries, violets, raspberry leaves and redcurrants plus a touch of iron ore. Medium-bodied with a rock-solid frame of grainy tannins and electric freshness, it has an incredibly tightly wound palate of red fruit and savory layers with a very long, minerally finish. -Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
