Within an enclave of adored cool-climate vineyard sites, just under five miles from the ocean, Taylor Ridge is planted to the Swan clone of Pinot Noir. In this bottling, the culmination of site and Swan comes together in complex, savory ways. Burnt orange meets blackberry tart in a brooding, tightly gripped wine that manages to hold on to a thicket of acidity, giving it balance and brightness.
