Winemaker's Notes:

Our estate-grown Pinot Noir comes from new plantings on our rolling hills in the foggy and cool Carneros, Napa Valley appellation. The Bouchaine Estate Vineyard is among the southernmost plantings in Napa Carneros and encompasses the highest landmark terraces in this region, so celebrated for its Pinot Noirs. This limited release Pinot is handcrafted from the finest select blocks of our family-owned vineyard and offers depth and power, balanced with grace and elegance. Barrel aged for 12 months in 75% new French and Hungarian oak, this wine offers smoky overtones, a splash of dark cherries, and a lingering finish, showing off the exuberant nature of Bouchaine's Pinot Noirs.

Food Pairings
This Pinot Noir pairs wonderfully with a number of grilled or roasted menu selections. Try it with crispy braised duck or roasted pork tenderloins in dried cherry relish.

My Notes:

About Bouchaine:

Bouchaine wines are a compelling expression of nature and culture, a marriage of grape and craft that harmonizes the elegance of Burgundy with the exuberance of California.

Bouchaine Vineyards is established in the site of the oldest continually operated winery in Carneros in the southern end of the Napa Valley. Bouchaine is dedicated to the pursuit of enticing Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, whose grapes are best suited to the climate and soils of our beautiful 100-acre estate vineyard. Located just north of the San Pablo and San Francisco Bays, the vineyard climate is directly influenced by the fog that rolls in each night, and the shallow, clay loam soils are perfectly suited to Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
