"Wine is art, and oak is the frame – and if you have too large of a frame, it detracts from the painting. You want just enough frame to show off the art."Paul Pontallier, Chateaux Margaux

Alder Springs Vineyard, Apex 39
"I really enjoyed this bottle of wine. My professional foundation of wine being with Rhone varietals, I am always looking for great examples of these varietals coming out of California. I was pleasantly surprised to find out Alder Springs Vineyard is one of them. The Apex 39 is a great expression of the varietals, but more so the vineyard and climate seeing to carry the varietal character in such a lovely way. It has wonderful texture and length with beautiful freshness and polish. I ended up enjoying this alongside a Chicken Parsley Bolognese pasta. It was outstanding."

Alder Springs Vineyard, Pinot Noir
"A lovely example of cooler climate California Pinot noir. High toned, transparent, with great acidity, spice, and backbone to pull the ripe red fruit character of pinot through. Great lift and energy. This would be lovely with trout or a composed duck dish."

— Courtney Wieland
