“Sexy, Racy” 95 Point (140 case) Red = FREE SHIPPING

 

For 3 generations the Holtermann Family has been one of the premier importers of wines, varying from hard-to-find, leading wineries to very large producers from all over the world.  Their longtime relationships with growers, enolgists, winemakers and vineyard managers provided them with a unique perspective of the wine industry. So the next step was panting their own vineyards, which they did in the remote ridge tops of Annapolis on the Sonoma Coast.  Add winemaker Carroll Kemp to the mix and you’ll wind up with great quality estate-grown wines at a great price point!

The highlight among the Pinots, the 2015 Alma Fria Pinot Noir Holtermann Vineyard is the most powerful and punchy of these wines. A rush of cherry, red stone fruit, dried flowers, tea leaves, mint and anise run through this bold, expressive Pinot. The tannins are a bit burly and need time to soften, but there is good potential here, not to mention tons of pure personality. I highly recommend to decant this youngster 30-45 minutes prior to serving to get full enjoyment of this baby.

Vinous 95 Points: “The highlight in this range, Alma Fria’s 2015 Pinot Noir Holtermann Vineyard is a very sexy wine. Racy, juicy and aromatically intense, the 2015 is another wine full of the natural radiance and richness the vintage provided on its own. Succulent red cherry, plum, menthol, licorice, lavender and spice all mesh together in this dense, super-expressive, yet mid-weight Pinot.”

Winery Notes:  “The 2015 vintage produced the most powerful and intense Holtermann Vineyard Pinot Noir yet. Beautiful aromatics of rose petals, red fruit, and hints of tobacco invite further exploration. Raspberries, pomegranates, red currents and bright cherries dominate the palate. The wine exhibits a soft mouthfeel and just a hint of salinity. Beautiful now, this wine will further develop with cellar time.”
