Cuvée Noir is a Cote Du Rhone style red wine blend, with a few twists. Always Grenache based, the blend of varieties and vintages will change with every bottling. For this unique batch, we took Grenache from Madera, CA and blended it with Petite Sirah to create a medium bodied, and smooth yet complex wine.
Winemaker's Tasting Notes
Inviting garnet color, light and bright. Elements of plum, raspberry and cocoa mixed with red hard candy and clove like spice. Supple texture throughout mid-palate leading to a soft finish with integrated tannin. Drink now through 2025.
