    "The highlight in this range, Alma Fria's 2015 Pinot Noir Holtermann Vineyard is a very sexy wine. Racy, juicy and aromatically intense, the 2015 is another wine full of the natural radiance and richness..." ~ Antonio Galloni's Vinous

    Wild mushroom and burrata bruschetta is what we would put next to our first glasses of Alma Fria Holtermann Vineyard Pinot Noir. It's a beauty; bursting with fruit and anchored by subtle earthiness it will make any pairing better. After the bruschetta, we recommend a prosciutto and sage-wrapped pork roast with roasted potatoes and lemony asparagus on the side. Plank-grilled salmon steaks with the sides of your choice is a classic no-fail choice, as are grilled lamb burgers with a mint mayonnaise and wilted raddichio. The only question: how will you ever choose?? 

    Antonio Galloni's Vinous:  "The highlight in this range, Alma Fria's 2015 Pinot Noir Holtermann Vineyard is a very sexy wine. Racy, juicy and aromatically intense, the 2015 is another wine full of the natural radiance and richness the vintage provided on its own. Succulent red cherry, plum, menthol, licorice, lavender and spice all mesh together in this dense, super-expressive, yet mid-weight Pinot. Drinking window: 2019 - 2025." Apr 2018

    Winery:  "The 2015 vintage produced the most powerful and intense Holtermann Vineyard Pinot Noir yet. Beautiful aromatics of rose petals, red fruit, and hints of tobacco invite further exploration. Raspberries, pomegranates, red currents and bright cherries dominate the palate. The wine exhibits a soft mouthfeel and just a hint of salinity. Beautiful now, this wine will further develop with cellar time."
