Brittan Vineyards Cygnus Block Pinot Noir 2018
United States, Oregon, Willamette Valley|
Shimmering ruby-red. Highly perfumed, smoke- tinged cherry and blackberry scents are complemented by suggestions of candied rose and succulent herbs. Concentrated yet lively bitter cherry, dark berry and spicecake flavors pick up licorice and cola flourishes with aeration. Closes very long and gently chewy, with repeating floral and cherry notes and a late suggestion of licorice. All Swan clone (hence "Cygnus") and 25% new French oak.
Limpid ruby. Ripe red and blue fruit, floral and exotic spice qualities on the nose, along with smoky mineral and succulent herb nuances. Juicy blueberry, cherry cola, star anise and candied violet flavors reveal a hint of black tea. Turns sweeter with air and finishes very long and precise, with smooth tannins framing reverberating blue fruit and floral notes. 18% new French oak.
