Cherry and macerated strawberry notes come through on the nose,
while fresh herbs, hints of crushed rocks, and cocoa belie the fruit.
With some air, a rich Allen perfume emerges with hints of dried rose
petals. Refined in the mouth, the essence of minerals and the tea-like
tannin structure coalesce with fruit flavors to create a wine with both
power and elegance.
The Allen Vineyard surrounds our winemaking facility. This Russian
River Valley hillside vineyard was planted in the early 1970s, and
produces low yields of exceptional quality Pinot Noir.
