ALMA FRIA PINOT NOIR DM '13
ALMA FRIA PINOT NOIR, DONA MARGARITA VINEYARD, SONOMA COAST 2013
NVWE Notes: Classic in structure and chiseled in it's clarity, this is a Pinot with a future. The nose is a coiled array of pomegranate, whortleberry, black raspberry, purple plum, mulling-spice, peppercorn, sandalwood, anise and mineral scents. That structure is even more prominent on the palate, where the mix of red and black fruits and sweet-savory spice is counter-pointed by youthful zest, tannins and hard-edged mineral notes. The finish is firm, focused and lingers with a pinpoint balance that suggests service with rich, fatty meats. Expect several years of improvement. 160 cases made. Debut Release.
