Alba Vineyard currently has one of the largest Pinot Noir vineyards on the East Coast. This quintessential Burgundian variety is very particular about the location of where it thrives. It loves limestone soils and cool climates well suited to Alba’s terroir. The 2014 growing season, an August and September dominated by warm, dry days and cool nights, made for near perfect ripening conditions.
Our Estate 2014 Pinot Noir features nicely perfumed aromas of ripe black cherry and cranberry. Rich, full-bodied, and smooth-textured our Pinot delivers a pure core of dark fruit and wild berry flavors that are intense and persistent. This is an elegant wine that offers depth and expressiveness on a long lingering finish with structure to age well for years.
The 2014 Estate Pinot Noir is extremely versatile when pairing with food. Meat, poultry, pasta, and grilled fish are some of the many accompaniments that would go beautifully with this fine estate wine.
