Our 2015 Pinot Noir reveals itself in elegant turns-from vibrant red cherry raspberry and juicy dark plum to hints of sun-warmed red rose petal and fragrant oak spices.

AALTO RIBERA DEL DUERO [Spain]

"Climatic Conditions: The winter was cold and rainy but spring was fortunately mild and the shoots appeared at the end of April a little earlier than usual but having avoided any frost damage. May and June were warm but not in excess reaching a maximum temperature of 29o °C allowing for a progressive and even development of the vines. The summer months were perfect with a high interval of temperatures between day and night - an important quality factor in our region- and by mid August with the beginning of veraison we began to suspect we were heading for a great year. Septembers early rains were very beneficial and we began to harvest grapes of exceptional quality on the 22nd. In no hurry at all and at a very comfortable pace we finished on October 13th.

The people of Nuits-Saint-Georges therefore began to refer to it as Cha teau Gris (grey castle) and the name stuck. Further to a court ruling in the 1920s the name "Chateau Gris" was allowed to prevail over the name of the place (lieu-dit) "Les Crots" where the vines are planted. The vines are planted on terraces that cling to the slope at an altitude of 280 metres.

The vines are dry-farmed and vertically trellised. Fermentation of Altamura Cabernet Sauvignon occurs in both open and closed top fermenters. Certain lots are allowed to macerate on their skins for up to three weeks following fermentation. This technique produces a wine with softer more integrated tannins which carry fruit and oak nuances through to the palate.

The vineyard in Wooden Valley predicates a Sangiovese that resembles Brunello more than Chianti. Because it is 100% Sangiovese the true flavors of the varietal are retained. The hand picked grapes are gently crushed into open and closed top tanks for fermentation. The exclusive use of free run juice allows the undiluted and unhampered expression of pure Sangiovese flavors. Following fermentation the wine is racked into 60 gallon medium toast French oak barrels for 24 months inside the stone winery and caves thus achieving richness of color and the softening of tannins of this vibrant and youthful varietal. The wine is lightly filtered prior to bottling. The Sangiovese vineyard was planted in 1986 and is located on the 400 acre Altamura Ranch in Wooden Valley.

The Greek symbol Lambda: "the magnitude" is used mathematically as a cosmological constant - big number. This wine reveals the magnitude of our vineyard. The relationship we cultivate with our land is paramount in producing hand crafted minimally invasive wines that both whisper and shout about the terroir from which they are grown. Our Ampelos Vineyard in Sta. Rita Hills is the first in the US to be certified sustainable organic and biodynamic. Our commitment to natural farming and winemaking is evident in every sip. Wine Making Style: After we harvested the fruit it will stay 1 day in our cold room to avoid using dry ice. The fruit is cold soaked for about 3 days and then the natural wild yeast will kick in for the primary fermentation. We hand punch down twice a day to assist the extraction of colors tan

AMPELOS ROSE SYRAH [United States]

Soil. Vines. Wines. This is the order in which great wine is made. Our little firecracker is an intentional flirt with a dash of grenache and dollop of riesling. Ampelos is the Greek word for vine. The relationship we have with our land is paramount in producing minimally invasive wines that showcase the terroir from which it is grown. The evidence is in every delicious sip. Wine Making Style Our overall rose style is to keep the ripe flavor of the syrah grapes alive and allow for the natural aromas and flavors to come forward. A third of the cuatro vientos and the estate syrah was de-stemmed crushed and cold soaked for 5 days to give it the beautiful glowing pink color and a deep red-wine alike mouth feel with light tannins From 2011 we have not been using commercial yeast for fermentation - but rather let mother natures wild yeast do the job. we had 10 different batches in stainless steel tanks and barre

ANDRE CLOUET BRUT SILVER CHAMPAGNE [France]

Andre Clouet makes this cuvee with no dosage. While being quite dry the wine is not searing. It has lovely finesse and concentration and finishes with a punch of tangy minerals. - Andre Clouet

ANDRE CLOUET CUVEE 1911 BRUT CHAMPAGNE 6/CS [France]

The NV Grand Cru Cuvee 1911 emerges from the glass with the most haunting of perfumes. Sweet rose petal and jasmine are some of the nuances that emerge over time. Despite recent disgorgement the purity of the fruit and the extraordinary elegance of the mousse are hard to miss. This is an exceptional elegant version of the 1911 that should drink beautifully for years to come. The bottle I tasted needed quite a bit of air to open up so readers should be patient with the wine at this stage. The current release of the 1911 is 100% Pinot Noir 50% 2002 vintage and 50% a solera blend that dates back to 1998. This is Lot L05 disgorged October 4 2010 and bottled with dosage of 6 grams per liter. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2020. This is another strong set of wines from Andre Clouet. Readers who appreciate Pinot-based Champagnes will find much to admire here. - Robert Parker The Wine Advocate
