    One of our staff’s favorite Pinots every year, the 2013 Joseph Swan “Saralee’s Vineyard” is sublime. Incredibly floral with wild iris and wisteria tones, backed by warm spice and energetic and lip-smacking red fruits, this is one complex Pinot Noir. What really separates it from so many others we sampled is its almost complete weightlessness. This is somehow packed with flavor yet never bogs down in pitchy weight or unnecessary ripeness. My final note on this wine is not suitable for print—it included a lot of exclamatory excitement and maybe a few joyous curse words!

    A classic Pinot Noir beauty. This wine is not big and lusty with a deep red color. It is lighter colored and delicate with seductive and expressive aromas that are absolutely lovely. In the mouth it is elegant with complex red fruit flavors that are layered and dry. Try it alone or with lighter foods.
