2019 Cuvée Alana Pinot Noir

2019 Cuvée Alana Pinot Noir

Named for Bill’s youngest daughter, the Cuvée Alana Pinot Noir is the most recent addition to our Cuvée Series. Located on a steep hillside near the quaint town of Occidental, this tiny vineyard is surrounded by towering pine and redwood trees. The cold, coastal environment is perfect for growing exceptional pinot noir, slowing down the development of sugars and acid to ensure the grapes mature at a slow, steady rate. Bottle aged for an additional six months, this follow-up release to the inaugural 2018 vintage is characterized by its rich core with a burst of bright acidity. Aromas of black cherry and hints of allspice greet the palate, while a deep ruby color shines from the glass - ultimately leading to a long, luxurious finish.

We have sold out of all Pinot Noir offerings for the season and will be releasing the fall selections in August of 2022.  Please contact us directly with any questions, or if you’re interested in joining our membership, click here

More Information
The growing season in 2019 was generally mild, leading to quality results. While there was record flooding of the Russian River and other local tributaries in February, the timing of the floods occurred during vine dormancy. That timing, plus the elevation of our vineyards, kept us in the clear. The weather was cool in August and September as the fruit matured, allowing us to pick without the pressure of heat waves or rain. Once the fruit was harvested, we captured the subtly and nuance as well as the intensity of flavor that comes with long maturation during those final cool months, resulting in superb quality that is certain to show itself with this “quiet” weather vintage.
