In the heart of the Russian River Valley, the Alberigi Vineyard, sourced exclusively by Radio-Coteau and farmed organically, lies on a stretch of Vine Hill Road renowned for its Goldridge soils. Working with this special site for 10 years, the Alberigi Vineyard Pinot Noir marks a decade's worth of learning about the vineyard's nuance, terroir, and personality while balancing finesse and strength and remaining consistently feminine.
"Deep red. Fresh red berry and floral aromas show excellent clarity and energy, with deeper cherry pit and anise qualities emerging with air. Nervy and precise, offering intense strawberry and raspberry flavors underscored by musky herb and floral pastille nuances. A touch of vanilla builds on the focused, long finish."
International Wine Cellar
"The 2010 Pinot Noir Alberigi is quite beautiful in this vintage. The firm yet fine tannins that seem to be a hallmark of this site support the expressive dark fruit nicely. Juniper, sage and mint are some of the many nuances that add complexity to the dark fruit. "
Vinous / Antonio Galloni
"An attractively spicy nose features notes of dark cherry plum and violets. There middle weight flavors are both plush and round yet retain a good sense of detail and vibrancy before terminating in an agreeably dry, dusty and mouth coating finish that delivers fine depth and length."
