Product Overview

The 2016 Alma Rosa Barrel Select Pinot Noir is a blend of the winemaker's favorite Pinot Noir barrels from the vintage. This wine has a beautifully balanced, earthy nose of dusty bramble berries, finishing with a ripe cherry note rounded out with excellent acidity.

Appellation: Sta. Rita Hills AVA

94 Points - Vinous
"The 2016 Pinot Noir Barrel Select is bright and punchy, with terrific presence and energy. Perfumed floral notes, red berry fruit and silky tannins give this expressive Pinot Noir much of its allure. The Barrel Select captures the intensity and radiance that are such signatures of the Sta. Rita Hills, and yet it also retains an element of translucence that is incredibly appealing. The conventional choice with barrel select wines is to emphasize power and concentration. It's nice to see winemaker Nick DeLuca go beyond that tired formula. Just 28 cases were botted." -AG, Sep/2018
