BRITTAN VINEYARDS Pinot Noir, McMinnville ‘Cygnus Block’ 2018

<div class="uk-panel uk-panel-box uk-panel-box-secondary">A gorgeous medium neon ruby in the glass, the 2018 Cygnus Block is made from an unusual clone of Pinot Noir named “Swan” and is aged for 12 months in 25% new French oak barrels. Luscious black cherry, wild huckleberry, toasted clove, brown sugar, dried pine needle, and lemon pith make a lovely combination of aromas and flavors. Tannins are still a bit chalky, but the mouthwatering acidity, and gorgeous fruit and spice notes, balance everything out nicely. Just 234 cases made.</div>
