2015 Cuvee X Pinot noir
The 2015 Cuvée X is a blend made to capture the freshness of this extraordinary vintage. To achieve this, barrels were selected roughly halfway through our more standard 15 months of barrel aging and brought to tank early where we could more readily preserve their bright fruit character. Additionally, second year oak barrels were preferentially selected to achieve pleasant oak nuances while not overpowering the blend. The resulting wine is thus modestly oaked and fruit focused.
