2016 Mes Filles Pinot Noir

Our 2016 Mes Filles Vineyard Pinot Noir from the Russian River Valley was honored with a 91 score in the Robert Parker Wine Advocate.

Tasting Notes

Intensely dark color and muscular aromas of smoke, bayberry, mushroom, black pepper, Asian spices and forest floor evoke this maritime-cool hillside vineyard anchoring the extreme southwest corner of the Russian River Valley. Near ripe wild blackberry, figs and cola flood boldly on the palate. Mouth feel is prolonged and opulent.

Winemaker Notes

Alquimista Cellars is excited to announce that we are using a new closure product. Called “UNiQ”, it comes from our long-time supplier Ganau, is made from finely ground natural cork that has been put through a high-intensity steam cleaning process at 180°. process at 180° C. This eliminates any trace of TCA (the chemical compound that causes wine to be “corked”) as well as defending against undesired aromas and off flavors.
