the pickIn the heart of the Russian River Valley, the Alberigi Vineyard, sourced exclusively by Radio-Coteau and farmed organically, lies on a stretch of Vine Hill Road renowned for its Goldridge soils. Vintage 2013 was a decadent year, and we included 19% whole cluster in the fermenter. An energetic undercurrent runs through the 2013 Alberigi, and while remaining consistently feminine, verve hums within this vintage. We look forward to seeing how this wine evolves in bottle.

The 2013 Radio-Coteau Alberigi Pinot Noir’s transparent ruby color foreshadows the high-toned fruit and mineral-driven wine that is to follow. Red cherry, ripe red raspberry, and fresh plum harmonize with well-established minerality. Savory fruits counterbalanced with the mineral character keep the acidity well rounded and lend the Alberigi Pinot Noir a velvety mouth feel. A second sip further reveals lavender notes, and a slight smokiness adds to the wine intrigue and the site from which it is sourced.
