Winemaker Notes

The 2013 Alta Russian River Pinot Noir has a wonderfully rich, creamy mouthfeel with red cherry fruit in every sip. The nose is like smelling a fresh baked cherry tart with Bavarian cream on a hot crust. It literally melts in your mouth, as the flavors unravel and reveal themselves, one by one. The wine further expresses its complexity and identifies its terroir with earthy notes, quintessential to Sonoma Coast. All together, this wine is bright and well knit. It is drinking well now, with good aging potential.

Wine Enthusiast
Tannic at first, this structured, youthful wine needs time in the glass to become itself, which is a well-made, lightly touched expression of wild strawberry and spice. The grapes come from the Moore Vineyard.

Alta  Winery Image

Alta Napa Valley is a small family owned and operated vineyard and winery high atop Atlas Peak in the Napa Valley. Founder, Fred Oliai, first laid eyes on the 90+ acre property in 2008 and instantly saw the potential of the vineyard. Alta prides itself on hand picking and gentle fermentation techniques, which are both essential to creating outstanding artisan wines.

While the Russian River Valley is a large appellation with multiple climate zones and soil types, it is best known for cool-climate varieties, with Pinot Noir as the most celebrated. The grapes benefit from a reliable late afternoon flow of Pacific Ocean fog through the Petaluma Gap and along the Russian River Valley that ensures slow and steady ripening and the preservation of grape acidity. Today many of California’s most highly regarded Pinot Noir vineyards are in the Russian River Valley, along with its sub-appellation, Green Valley.

Historically Russian River Valley Pinot Noirs had bright red fruit and delicate earthy, mineral notes. But changes in viticultural and winemaking practices have led to stylistic changes in some of the region’s wines. Adjustments to canopy management, among other techniques, have resulted in riper fruit and bolder wines as well. These show flavors of black cherry, blackberry, cola, spice and darker, loamy earth tones, accenting traditional Pinot Noir notes of strawberry, raspberry and light cherry.
