Aliette

$60.00

Aliette is a perfumed and finesse-driven expression of Pinot Noir, offering notes of strawberry, rosewater, raspberry tea and a trace of minerality.

Descriptors 
Fruit 

Ripe strawberries and red raspberries

Spice, Vegetable, Mineral 

Graceful minerality on the palate

Texture/Structure 

Fine tannins and fresh acidity. A supple palate is generous in mouthfeel and lingers for a long, luxurious finish.

At The Table 

Aliette pairs beautifully with pork tenderloin medallions, salmon or roasted chicken.

Glassware 

A traditional Pinot Noir/Burgundy glass with a round bowl will convey this varietal’s profound aromatics and structural characteristics.

Serving and Cellar 

Serve at cellar temperature 55 – 60 ̊F. Cellar from five to fifteen years for maximum enjoyment.

In the Vineyard 

Named for our founder’s mother, Aliette is situated on a single, gently sloping southeast-facing hillside that ranges in elevation from 570 to 610 feet. The ground has a deep layer of WillaKenzie soil on top of harder-to-penetrate sandstone, resulting in vines that have deep, spreading roots.
