2019 Appassionata Allegro Pinot Noir

Inspired by the three movements of Beethoven’s ground-breaking “Appassionata” Piano Sonata, there are threeAppassionata Pinot Noirs, released at different tempos. The opening tier of Appassionata Pinot Noir bears the nameof the Piano Sonata’s first movement, Allegro, which is the musical pace of a brisk walk. This cuvée is a selection ofbarrels that show a precocious liveliness and expressivity that will drink well as a youthful wine, but is built for aging.It is bottled after 18 to 20 months in barrel, and released three years after the vintage. The 2019 Allegro is delicatelytextured, but dark in tone and richly flavored, with an insistent edge of black cherry fruit, and a juicy, lifted finish. Itbeautifully displays the beginnings of bottle maturation, and will age gracefully for many years.

“Allegro” means play at a brisk, lively tempo. Talk about an aptly named wine, as its acidity is positively electric. White-peach and raspberry aromas mingle with touches of crunchy dried leaves, earth, and grilled meat. A fresh, lively mouthfeel introduces flavors like blackberries and thyme backed by modest tannins. - Wine Enthusiast, April 2023
