Wine Description

(2011 Vintage) Medium ruby color. e aromatics of this wine leap out of the glass. Aromas of cranberry, red apple, toasty cinnamon and vanilla hint at the flavors to come. With the first sip, Alouette glides across the palate with an elegant balance of acidity and bright fruit, with suppleness from beginning to end. A Pinot Noir in every sense, with an abundance of flavors from cranberry and strawberry to a spiced cider note that develops mid-palate and carries through to the end. e finish is full of minerality while keeping with the rich, bright fruit and firm acidity, which plays well with the light gripping tannin that rounds this wine out nicely.
