Cuvaison's Carneros Pinot Noir comes from the 400-acre estate in the southern part of Napa Valley. This cool climate vineyard allows near perfect conditions year after year to produce world class Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Merlot. Controlling all farming aspects within the estate vineyard gives Cuvaison an advantage in producing the best quality fruit therefore minimizing over manipulation at the winery. Winemaker Steven Rogstad, sums it up best, "My style and philosophy are based on expressing the unique character of our estate grapes and doing as little as possible to them. When one has such wonderful fruit to work with, that should be one's emphasis."
Warm tones of red currant.
Strawberry, boysenberry, allspice and vanilla.
Well knit flavors of wild strawberries, licorice, orange peel, with a lively long finish. An elegant and restrained Pinot Noir with fine balance and delicious fruit.
