This is a wine or at least a winery that people should be able to find. Joseph Swan is one of ye olde California wineries and if you ever see a Pinot saying they use the Swan clone, yup Swan was one of the first Pinot producers in the state. If you haven’t been, I would definitely recommend a visit to this unpretentious winery just off River Road outside Santa Rosa. This is a 2006 Saralee Vineyard Pinot Noir. The color is an amazing light brick red with a hint of brown on the edge showing a touch of age. The nose is just wonderful. To be sure there is cherry and strawberry but there is a lot more including hints of cinnamon and black licorice. Quite complex and a joy to smell. On the palate there are berries with currants now and the licorice persists into the finish. To me a very nice wine for $25. I definitely recommend it.
