The 2017 L’Altra Pinot Noir is the true expression of our Dundee estate Furioso Vineyard. Our gentle extraction process during fermentation gives this wine a smooth, delicate texture. Complex aromas of blackberry, black cherry, and cinnamon wonderfully complement the velvety tannins and natural acidity on the palate, carrying this wine to a gratifying finish.
US BEST PINOT NOIRS of 2019 - Wine & Spirits Magazine, April 2020
“This estate wine is pungently aromatic, like a spice box filled with cinnamon and cut tobacco. Yet the flavors are mouthwatering and pure, the cherry fruit framed in dusty mineral tannins that provide tension and grip; for duck confit.” 93 pts ~ Wine & Spirits
"This has a very impressive and concentrated feel with such poise and purity, whilst delivering concentrated dark cherries in abundance. There’s a lot of wine here, all delivered with such impressive balance and style. Drink or hold." 94 points ~ JamesSuckling.com
"The 2017 Pinot Noir L'Altra has a medium ruby-purple color and aromas of smoked cranberries, fresh blackberries and Earl Grey tea leaves with nuances of forest floor, tree bark, citrus peel and red and blue flowers. Medium-bodied and silky, it has a nice interplay of fresh fruit and earth nuance with a soft frame and great freshness, finishing long and floral." 92 points ~ Robert Parker Wine Advocate
