For 3 generations the Holtermann Family has been one of the premier importers of wines from all over the world. Their longtime relationships with growers, enologists, winemakers and vineyard managers provided them with a unique perspective of the wine industry. So the next step was planting their own vineyards, which they did in the remote ridge tops of Annapolis on the Sonoma Coast. Add winemaker Carroll Kemp (founder & winemaker Red Car) to the mix and you’ll wind up with great quality estate-grown wines at a great price point! Carroll Kemp just became the owner of the winery, starting with the upcoming harvest (2022 vintage)

The 2021 Alma Fria “Plural” Pinot Noir is a blend of the best barrels from three amazing West Sonoma Coast vineyards – Holtermann, Dona Margarita and Zephyr Farms. The wine offers up gorgeous black raspberry and wild plum flavors, combined with highlights of Gravenstein apple peel, clay, and a hint of spice to form a medium-bodied wine with refreshing acidity and smooth texture. Aged in 10% new French oak. 13.4% alcohol. Only 290 cases were produced.
Red raspberry, black cherry, and tangerine pith flavors merge like tributaries forming a larger, more iconic river. Aromas are reminiscent of young Douglas fir needles that were harvested early and damp. The mouthfeel is seamless, persistent, and transparent. Tasting this wine quickly becomes a wonderful memory as it almost evaporates in the mouth.
Winemaker Notes: “This wine offers balance, nuance and structure alongside the flavors of the rugged, cold West Sonoma Coast that we love so much. It opens with notes of black cherry and blood orange, then reveals hints of juniper, redwood spice and cardamon, as its smooth natural acidity lingers on the palate.
