Alexander Valley Vineyards Pinot Noir Estate 2005

Alexander Valley Vineyards Pinot Noir Estate 750ML 2005    
Sku: 12148

The Wetzel Family’s Pinot Noir vineyard is planted along the banks of the Russian River; where the morning fog lingers and cools the vines. The small vineyard is planted to just four clones - Dijon777: for rich concentration, black fruit; Dijon115: for soft tannins & perfume, Pommard: for color, dark fruit & spice and FPMS2A: for perfume, finesse, red fruit. The vines are grown using the Smart Dyson trellis system - allowing us to control the vigor of the vine while giving us flexibility to adjust the trellising to changing weather conditions during the growing season. This ensures the fruit gets adequate sun exposure, while keeping yields in check.

Tasting notes
Bright ruby color. Blackberries and wild strawberries are the dominant aromas along with faint aromas of clove, cocoa, and vanilla. On the pallet, flavors of fresh plum and black cherry are framed with a supple mouthfeel and light tannins. The abundance of fruit is balanced by the pleasant French oak influence. The combination of soft tannins and intense fruit provides a finished mouth-feel that is delicate and velvety

Wine maker notes
Long, warm summer days and cool evenings during grape maturation along with limiting the crop in the 5 acre block situated on the Alexander Valley Vineyards property, has unquestionably produced a Pinot Noir which is abundant in the classic Pinot aromas and flavors. Cold soaking; two pump overs a day during fermentation; plus the use of the two different yeast strains enhanced the aroma and flavor.
