The 2015 vintage of our Montes Alpha Pinot Noir presents an impressive bright and vibrant ruby-red color. The aromas are highly complex and elegant with a predominance of fresh blue and red berries as well as blackcurrant, licorice, and violets over a backdrop that recalls the forest after a spring rain. Its time in the barrel lends subtle tobacco and vanilla notes plus a clear echo of caramel in perfect harmony with the fruit. The palate is balanced and smooth with medium volume and sensational length, which further accentuates its fruity and floral aromas. Food Pairing: Highly recommended with pasta and pesto, mild, creamy soups (mushroom, chicken), veal chops, salmon, Camembert cheese, mushroom risotto, arugula and herb salad, and bruschetta.

Briary plum and red berry aromas come with side notes of tea, wood spice, savory herbs and iron. On the palate, this is a touch thick and resiny, but healthy acidity cuts through the wine's natural ripeness. Spiced plum flavors are a touch oaky, while this is dry and firmly tannic on a finish where complex notes of salt, tomato and black tea surface.

Aconcagua Costa makes this cloned Pinot Noir (777), harvested in mid-March with one-third whole bunches and one-third frozen grapes. Fairly light red in color. The nose is dominated by cherries and strawberries over a bed of herbs and damp earth. Luxurious (3.22 grams of sugar) with balanced freshness and mellow tannins.
