""We do a little more whole cluster with this wine," says Steve Kistler. "It tends to want to be a little more savory, not floral in the same way as the Elizabeth. So, we try to accentuate that savory and spice character with more whole cluster." The SWK is the northwest corner of the Bodega Headlands property, the highest point on the property most exposed to the weather. Pale to medium ruby-purple, the 2016 Pinot Noir SWK Vineyard opens with warm cranberry sauce, rhubarb, pomegranate and crushed red cherries with blueberry sparks and notes of tangerine peel, crushed rock, potpourri, peppered meats and dried herbs scents. Light to medium-bodied, it offers loads of spicy fruit layers with a softly grainy frame and a long, lifted finish." - Erin Brooks, robertparker.com (Dec 19, 2019)
