Winemaker Notes

The Estate Pinot Noir has classic style with balanced acidity and bright fruit. There are aromas of strawberry, cherry, raspberry, vanilla and oak. Earthy flavors of fresh cherry, blackberry and plum fill the glass along with silky texture and a structured finish.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2014 Pinot Noir, which they first produced in 1978, is a blend from the well-known Dijon clones along with the so-called Pommard clone and then put in 100% French oak. This is a sexy, seductive style of Pinot Noir with an unimpressive light ruby color, but beautiful ripe strawberry fruit, a graceful, generous mouthfeel, medium body, and red apple skin notes intermixed with pomegranate and black cherry. A sexy premier cru Côtes de Beaune in stylistic terms, it should drink well for another 5-7 years. This is how Pinot Noir can hit the high marks, by being delicate rather than a blockbuster.

Alexander Valley Vineyards, California
Alexander Valley Vineyards Winery Image
Alexander Valley Vineyards is owned and operated by the Harry Wetzel family. Founded in 1975, it is located on Cyrus Alexander's old homestead.

The Wetzel Family Estate now grows fourteen grape varieties, on diverse sites stretching from the banks of the Russian River up onto the hillsides. Each grape variety is matched to a specific soil type and exposure. Vineyard Manager Mark Houser and Winemaker Kevin Hall work as a team to maximize fruit flavor in the vineyard and to create balanced wines that capture the grapes’ varietal characteristics. Hank Wetzel oversees the vineyard and winery operations, and his wife Linda continues to oversee administration. Now the third generation of Wetzels has joined the winery. Harry Wetzel, IV is assistant winemaker while younger brother Robert is the National Sales Manager.

Alexander Valley Vineyards produces 100,000 cases annually, 17 varietal wines and proprietary blends. Seventy-five percent of AVV’s production is red wine. Chardonnay, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon constitute roughly half of total production. Other varietals include Pinot Noir, Zinfandel, Gewurztraminer, Syrah, Sangiovese, Viognier, and Cabernet Franc.

Nearly a northern extension of Napa Valley, Alexander Valley starts just north of the small, Knights Valley, and is just a few minutes drive from the Napa town of Calistoga. It is Sonoma County’s hottest AVA. But the Russian River, which runs through the valley, creates cooler pockets and its soft, alluvial soil is ideal for grape growing, especially Cabernet Sauvignon. In fact, some believe that Alexander Valley Cabernets truly rival the best from Napa Valley and many of the heavy-hitter producers have largely invested here.

In addition to Cabernet Sauvignon, which makes up over 50% of plantings, Merlot and old vine Zinfandel thrive here. Ample, fleshy Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc dominate white wine production. Some old-vine plantings of Grenache have also been discovered and more recent experiments with Sangiovese and Barbera show great promise.
