2010 Carneros Pinot Noir Receives 90pt Rating from Wine Enthusiast Magazine!

 

 

"One of Cuvaison's best basic Pinots in years,
this is charming with its dry, crisp structure,
silky elegance and fine flavors of raspberries,
cherries and toasty oak...”

-- Steve Heimoff, Wine Enthusiast


Winemaker Notes by Steven Rogstad
 
A tremendous year for Pinot Noir in Carneros, La Nina conditions set up a long cool growing season with just a few bumps on the way. Our 2010 possesses vibrant notes of cherry, raspberry, and pomegranate with hints of allspice and sassafras. On the palate the wine is quite dense with both red and black fruits, especially cherry and boysenberry coming to the fore. The coolness of the wine really forges the finish with fine tannins and bright minerality to the long aftertaste.
