All harvests are complex: mother nature never makes my job easy. Nonetheless, 2019 was a key harvest.

After much effort and dedication, all the work that we put in was reflected in the vintage. Our understanding of each of the blocks that make up the Alazan— plus the work realized across many years— has produced a wine that stands out compared to those that came before it. 

The aromatic expression of the Alazan is multi-layered. An abundance of red fruit, spices and earthy notes interact with each other to reflect the year and the harvest better than ever. 

On the palate, as always, the Alazan contains great volume and texture. Its structure and freshness guarantee an extraordinary life in the bottle.

**94 pts.** Descorchados, Ranking Mejores Casablanca **93 pts.** James Suckling **93 pts.** Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate **93 pts.** Guía Mesa de Cata (La Cav) Luis Gutíerrez:"There is a lot of restraint and elegance in the 2019 Alazan Pinot Noir, selected from their best plots and fermented with indigenous yeasts and full clusters in search of freshness. It matured in a combination of concrete eggs, French oak barrels and 2,000-liter foudres, never new. This is a lovely style of Pinot Noir, medium-bodied with great purity and precision, fine tannins and very good freshness. Delicious!" "This “Alazan” Pinot Noir has a lovely balance between herbs and fruit and a unique darker berry character that I really enjoyed." "Light to medium garnet in the glass, this wine smells of struck match, raspberries, and chopped green herbs. In the mouth, brilliantly juicy flavors of raspberry and boysenberry are backed by green herbs and a touch of dusty tannin. Fantastic acidity and great length. -Vinography
