Orin Swift Slander Pinot Noir 2018
Aged for 10 months in French oak barrels (42% new), the 2018 Pinot Noir Slander has a pale to medium ruby-purple color. It springs from the glass with notes of raspberry tart, cranberry sauce and rhubarb pie plus hints of Provence herbs and forest floor. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is softly spoken with a nice suggestion of chewiness to the texture and an earthy lift on the finish.
Peppery undercurrents accent the spiced cherry and dark currant flavors. The minerally finish features slate and hot stone details. Drink now. 8,800 cases made.
