Alisos 2012

Add To Cart

The 2012 vintage in general, created leaner wines that have more structure with less fleshy fruit and Alisos is no exception. While the wine is still fresh and bright when young, it has more potential for aging than past vintages. 2012 also marks the very last bottling of Alisos from the Alisos vineyard, but don't fret, Alisos the wine will continue to be made from Palmina's own estate farmed vineyards: Honea and Fiore in the Santa Ynez Valley.


Tasting Notes
Aromas of bing and black cherry, blonde tobacco leaf, and subtle hints of leather. Flavors of red-skin and yellow-flesh plum, clove, mace and star anise mingle with savory notes of beef broth. The weight and texture create a silky mouth.


Food Pairing Notes
The 2012 Alisos pairs well with many classic, fresher Italian dishes such as Chicken Saltimbocca and Cacciatore, as well as lighter pork dishes. For this shipment, we paired Alisos with grilled pork skewers served with a pine nut, currant soffrito over a bed of arugula which brought out the fruit character and baking spice in the Alisos.
