Winemaker's Notes

Complex in fruit and earth notes, the 2001 Aliette showcases the Willakenzie terroir and floral attributes of Pinot Noir. The nose is clear and lifted, and offers hints of citrus, herbs and vanilla, with a layer of red fruit. In the mouth, juicy pomegranate and red currants usher in nuances of light oak and toast. Tannins are finely weighed with acidity, providing a long and balanced finish. 2001 Aliette pairs nicely with dishes calling for a big, complex wine, such as rack of lamb, barbequed steak, and stuffed eggplant. Easy to drink now, this vintage's elegant character will develop even more in 2-3 years and can be cellared for at least 5 years.
