I typically like the wines from this producer but given what I look for in pinot now, the way this came across last night, I didn't care for it. Dark fruited, blackberry profile, riper styled. Just seemed big to me. This will appeal to a cut of the CA pinot crowd, just not for me.
I wish I had a lot more of this delicious wine. We finished this wine a couple hours ago with friends and the flavor still lingers. Deep, rich and luscious. It may, and probably will, get better with age, but you can't make a mistake drinking it now - simply a great bottle of wine.
Enjoyed a few bottles of the 2010 Cuvee Alyce over dinner with friends and family. Opened them all about 30 minutes ahead of the meal and the wine was drinking beautifully. It clearly exceeded my expectations and drew great comments around the table from a serious pinot noir drinking crowd. This is a great pinot, particularly at the price.
