2018 ALDENALLI
RUSSIAN RIVER VALLEY PINOT NOIR

Sourced from one of the best Pinot Noir growing regions in the world, the inaugural release of AldenAlli Russian River Valley Pinot Noir offers an exciting expression of the grape. A deep garnet color in the glass, this wine offers aromas of deep cherry and vanilla, cocoa powder and baking spice with hints of orange peel. On the palate, this wine opens with a creamy, semi-sweet chocolate finish. The exciting mid-palate is highlighted by ripe stone fruit with notes of ripe raspberries and vanilla. Dried cranberry, potpourri, and wild strawberry flavors extend the long, lingering finish.

Limerick Lane is a thirty-acre estate located in the far northeastern corner of the Russian River Valley. Dan has been in love with this vineyard since first tasting the wines in the late 1980s. Since 2015, we have been lucky enough to procure just a couple of tons per year from our friends and Limerick Lane proprietors Jake and Alexis Bilbro. The 2018 vintage is sleek, vibrant and extremely limited.

2017 ALDENALLI
CAMPBELL RANCH PINOT NOIR

At approximately 750 feet above sea level, Campbell Ranch vineyard sits right at the boundary of the marine layer in the remote coastal mountains above Annapolis, California. The marine influence ensures that the cool, coastal climate delays ripening well beyond the warmer vineyards to the east. The fifteen-year-old vines grow on sandy, low-vigor Goldridge soil, which helps reduce yields just under three tons per acre.Since 2013, the Campbell Ranch has become a cornerstone of the AldenAlli Pinot Noir program. Coveted for its quality and transparent reflection of the Sonoma Coast AVA, we revere the elegance of this ranch. 2017 offered an ideal growing season to show the delicate yet complex nature of the terroir.

2017 ALDENALLI
SUNCHASE VINEYARD PINOT NOIR

Located in the Petaluma Wind Gap, Sunchase Vineyard offers a slightly different profile within the Sonoma Coast AVA. Sunchase Vineyard sits at about 1,000 feet elevation on the western side of Sonoma Mountain. 2017 was our first vintage producing a vineyard designate of this wine. The 2017 Sunchase Pinot Noir has intriguing depth and an almost brooding quality. Deep, dark fruit flavors are complimented by spice components. A small amount of whole cluster fermentation provides backbone, density and structure for the elegant flavor profile.
