Established in 1969, Cuvaison produces Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grown exclusively on its estate vineyard in the heart of the world-renowned region of Carneros in Napa Valley. Cooled by fog from the San Pablo Bay, the rolling hills of this certified sustainable estate have produced distinctive Chardonnay and Pinot Noir for over 30 years.
The Estate Pinot Noir is carefully crafted from 10 blocks of the Carneros estate vineyard. Each block is vinified separately using gentle techniques such as open top fermentation, gentle punch downs, basket pressing and oak maturation – 11 months in French oak barriques a third of which are new. All these elements are designed to preserve the wine’s delicacy and freshness.
“The Estate Pinot Noir is brimming with bright strawberry, raspberry and fresh cherry flavors made more intriguing with a subtle hint of allspice, persimmon and violet. The wine shimmers on the palate with vibrant acidity and round, graceful tannins.” – Winemaker, Steve Rogstad
