2016 Joseph Swan "Solas Vineyard" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir (Elsewhere $45)

SKU #1723321

"Joseph Swan Vineyards is a small family owned winery located in the heart of Sonoma County, California’s famed Russian River Valley. Although they specialize in vineyard designated pinot noir and old vine zinfandel, Joseph Swan also produces small lots of other wines including Rhone style wine, pinot gris and chardonnay. Joe really believed that, when it came to grape growing and winemaking, small was beautiful. A small vineyard could be tended by one person. Small crops led to more intense, ageworthy wines. A small winery allowed you to oversee every aspect from fermentation to bottling. Joe was a perfectionist and felt that if the wine was to carry his name, then he should be personally responsible for every aspect of its production. In 1967 he purchased a small farm on Laguna Road near the town of Forestville in the Russian River Valley of Sonoma County and Joe Swan Vineyards was established." (Skurnik Wines)

Once again we've managed to strike a deal with Joseph Swan to get our hands on some very well priced and absolutely delicious library releases from this iconic and much loved Russian River stalwart. The Solas Vineyard is a small family vineyard in the highly sought after Sebastopol Hills sub-region of Russian River (likely soon to become its own distinct AVA). This area is home to other famed estates such as Littorai and Kanzler. The regions unique combination of decomposed sandstone and Goldridge soils, windy western exposures and intermittent fog makes it perfect for growing Pinot Noir. The Solas Vineyard was planted in 2000 and is organically farmed by hand. The fruit it produces is a perfect fit for Swan's layered and complex style of Pinot Noir. Dried rose petals on the nose with a mélange of forest berries. Plenty of earthy tones - damp soil mingle with brambly, dark red berry fruit, leaf litter, wild herbs, and freshly unearthed truffle. Dried spices, hints of leather and woodsy notes linger. A super balanced wine with a lovely combination of fruit and savory components. Already in its prime drinking window but still plenty of potential left for more positive development over the coming 3-5 years, maybe more. A beautiful example of why Swan has such a long and dedicated following. Cheers!
Top Value! Drink from 2024 to 2030
