"Fermented with yeast isolated from the vineyard block. 12 months in untoasted new French oak. pH 3.12. Unfiltered.
Mid cherry red. Sweet red cherry fruit, primary and bright, with a touch of spice to balance the fruit sweetness. More scented on the palate with juicy red fruit and impressive freshness. The oak barely shows here, the tannins are polished, a harmonious and still very youthful Pinot with just a touch of heat at the back of the throat.17/20 points. (JH)"
Vinous Reverie Notes
Tasting Notes: Meticulous care in the vineyard and a gentle touch in the winery resulted in ALPHA’s PINOT NOIR. A wine of great intensity, balance and structure. Depth and concentration balanced by the fresh acidity and minerality that are typical of the site. Influenced by new oak, their subdued, alluring aromas, characterized from wild cherries aromas, with hints of spiced black plums, raspberries and cocoa seduce the educated palate, as does the vibrant acidity. Food Pairing: Well paired with all white meats, from chicken to turkey and hare, grilled or cooked in fine sauces. Pork fillet and feathered game.
