Cuvée Noir is a Cotes 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

Deep garnet hue with expressive aromatics that jump from the glass. Bright cherry candied red fruit, rhubarb, and pie crust. Medium bodied and juicy texture with bright acid. Good tannic structure provides a lengthy finish.
