Cuvaison 2016 Two Estates Red Wine - Napa Valley
Napa Valley, Los Carneros

2016 Red Wine, Two Estates

Winemaker's Notes

Our Two Estates combines the vibrant fruit, elegant balance and natural freshness indicative of our cool-climate Los Carneros vineyard with the more powerful and sturdier tannin fruit of our Brandlin estate vineyard on Mount Veeder. The wine displays classic notes of blackcurrant, cassis, blueberry and plum with a nice interplay of black tea and cigar box.
