Winemaker’s Notes: This wine displays classic Los Alamos characteristics of crushed red fruit, raspberry and ripe strawberry on the nose. As the wine opens up, aromas of leather and cinnamon add depth. There’s a very linear focus to this wine, with a refreshing, energetic mouthfeel and long finish. We expect this wine to age quite well, though it’s tasting great right now. Robert Parker 93 Points: “The 2013 Pinot Noir Los Alamos was my favorite of the Pinot Noirs and its transparent ruby color is followed by a beautiful bouquet of subtle strawberries, Asian spices and crushed flowers. Medium-bodied, perfumed and elegant, with a seamless, fine texture, it shines for its purity and class more than for power or richness. Aged 16 months in 10% new French oak, it’s a Pinot Noir with class that will drink nicely over the coming 4-5+ years.”
