Brittan Vineyards 2017 Cygnus Block Pinot Noir (McMinnville)

Editors' Choice

The Cygnus is 100% Swan clone, and stands out among the 2017s for its exceptional fruit mix of strawberry, raspberry and cherry. The acids bring a twist of lemon, while aging in 28% new French oak adds a streak of caramel and a whiff of toast. Though all of Brittan's 2017s show less of the site's defining minerality, it's evident here in the drying finish. Paul Gregutt
