Alazan is our top Pinot Noir and a sommelier favorite for its sophistication and depth. Named after Peter Kingston’s burgundy-colored horse in the 1950’s, Alazan is a limited, reserve bottling made from a few special cuarteles in the Kingston vineyard.

Alazan 2017 is significantly more serious than the Tobiano. Deeper fruit, more density on the palate. And the fruit is somewhat different in character, more dark. There’s a lovely cool sweetness on the mid palate. Yet the wine is lively, and very light on its feet. It should age beautifully, something that I was hesitant to say about our earlier vintages of Pinot Noir. Read more in Byron's tasting notes ››

**(92 points)** A firm and silky pinot with dried strawberries and hints of blue fruits. Medium body. Lovely tension and focus to this young pinot. -*James Suckling*
