2019 Single Vineyard Duo
A true cherry color in glass, the 2019 iteration of our L’Altra is ripe with notes of juicy Italian plums, cranberry sauce, and hints of tangerine. Following its fruity beginnings then, is a more rustic backbone of woodsy cedar and fresh rosemary. While young, the palate shows off a wonderfully pure expression of fruit, though never cloying - its notes of luscious rainier cherries, blueberry, and soft cinnamon are livened by a powerful acidity and evolving yet vibrant finish. This wine would find a happy home next to a cedar plank salmon, or a lavish spread of Mediterranean dishes. Representative of its cooler vintage, the 2019 L’Altra demonstrates tremendous ageability and we recommend drinking now through 2030.
On the nose, the 2019 Pietro has hints of rose petal, graphite, and tarragon, as befits Yamhill-Carlton Pinot Noir. In the mouth, elements of cranberry and orange, more “red fruited” than the 2018 vintage, evokes thoughts of fresh-caught grilled Pacific Northwest salmon. As with all Furioso wines, this bottle was made to be cellared and will continue to evolve in the bottle for up to 10 years. To enjoy this wine young, it should be decanted before serving.
