Professional Wine Reviews for Alma Rosa Pinot Noir Mt. Eden Clone El Jabali Vineyard 2016

Rated 91 by Wine Spectator
Dense and rich-tasting, featuring concentrated notes of hoisin sauce to the cherry tart and cocoa powder flavors. Extravagantly spicy, with some savory accents on the finish. Drink now through 2022. 457 cases made.
Rated 90 by Wine Advocate
Like the '11 and '12, the 2013 Pinot Noir El Jabali Vineyard Mt Eden Clone is outstanding. Completely destemmed and aged 15 months in neutral oak, it shows the focus and precision of the vintage, with bright acidity carrying edgy notes of medicinal herbs, leather, black cherry and flower-like aromas and flavors. Still young and slightly backwards, it should be better in another year and have a solid decade of overall longevity.

Winery Alma Rosa

Region: California

Since the 18th century, California has been a hugely important and influential wine region, acting as a trailblazer for other New World wine regions and utilizing an important blend of traditional and contemporary practices, methods and techniques relating to their wine production. Split into four key areas – the North Coast, the Central Coast, the South Coast and the Central Valley – Californian wineries make the most of their ideal climate and rich variety of terrains in order to produce a fascinating range of wines made with a long list of different fine grape varietals. Today, the state has almost half a million acres under vine, and is one of the world's largest wine exporters, with Californian wines being drunk and enjoyed all across the globe.

Country: United States

The first European settlers to consider growing grapevines in the United States must have been delighted when they discovered the now famous wine regions within California, Oregon and elsewhere. Not even in the Old World are there such fertile valleys, made ideal for vine cultivation by the blazing sunshine, long, hot summers and oceanic breezes. As such, it comes as little surprise that today more than eighty-nine percent of United States wines are grown in the valleys and on the mountainsides of California, where arguably some of the finest produce in the world is found. However, American wine does not begin and end with California, and due to the vast size of the country and the incredible range of terrains and climates found within the United States, there is probably no other country on earth which produces such a massive diversity of wines. From ice wines in the northern states, to sparkling wines, aromatized wines, fortified wines, reds, whites, rosés and more, the United States has endless surprises in store for lovers of New World wines.

Appellation: Santa Barbara

When it comes to Californian wines, the region of Santa Barbara is highly respected, and has an ever growing fan-base who adore the big, characterful and flavorful wines the region produces. Santa Barbara benefits from the same west coast sunshine the rest of the state does, and has a fine set of soils which help give the wines some of their distinctive flavours. The majority of Santa Barbara wines are red, with Cabernet Sauvignon being an important grape varietal for the dozens of wineries which call the county their home. However, white wine production is very much on the increase in Santa Barbara, as wine-makers discover how good the blend of sunshine and Pacific wind can be for many classic French white wine grape varietals.
