Cuvaison Carneros Pinot Noir 2015
|California, Napa Valley, Carneros
"The 2015 vintage was marked by an early bud break, coming out of a warm, dry winter. Unseasonably cool weather at flowering severely limited the vineyard yields, but left us with wonderfully rich and concentrated wines. Our Cuvaison Estate Pinot offers up an intriguing blend of black plum, wild strawberry, cherry and raspberry fruit against a backdrop of cola, licorice and hint of sassafras. An inviting medley of floral notes, black and red fruits and a lingering spice, our 2015 captures the essence of our Carneros Estate." - Steve Rogstad, Winemaker
Muted on the nose, this light-bodied effort is velvety in texture, with a bite of tannin met by equal parts acidity and freshness. Cranberry and black tea highlight the appealing flavor profile.
