2014 Albatross Ridge First Flight Pinot Noir
We are excited to unveil the inaugural 2014 vintage of our Albatross Ridge First Flight Pinot Noir. Crafted as both a block and barrel selection of our most spectacular Pinot Noir from the exceptional 2014 growing season, our debut First Flight is a soaring wine of effortless power and grace. Hypnotically aromatic, with beautiful complexity and structure, and gorgeous layers of fruit, earth and minerality, it is the culmination of everything we have been working to achieve over the past decade. Without question, it is the finest wine we have ever made.
While First Flight has yet to be reviewed, our 2014 Estate Pinot Noir earned 95 points and was hailed as “a great achievement” by Wine Enthusiast, with our 2014 Cuvée Vivienne receiving 94 points. Made from our three most stirring barrels of wine from the vintage, the 2014 First Flight was grown in the rockiest section of our vineyard—an area that yields a profoundly bold and nuanced expression of Pinot Noir. A true limited-production offering, we only made 68 cases of this dazzling wine. If you would like to acquire this special bottling for your collection, we encourage you to place your order while it lasts.
Orders will be fulfilled on November 1, 2017.
