2016 L'Altra Pinot Noir
An overall warmer Oregon vintage led to an early harvest of our Dundee estate. Clusters were half their usual size and berries were small, leading to an amazing concentration and depth in the finished wine. Medium purple in color, aromatically the 2016 L’Altra is bursting with blueberry and blackberry fruit with a touch of earthiness and a hint of menthol. In the mouth, it is very structured, with powerful tannins and a refreshing acidity on the finish to complete this persuasive Pinot. Fire up your barbecues people, as this wine demands to be paired with lamb shanks or even a juicy roast beef.
