2017 Cuvée X Pinot noir
The 2017 Cuvée X is a blend made to capture the freshness of the 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. The purity of the strawberry, raspberry and cherry fruit makes this wine an excellent dinner companion but it can also be enjoyed all on its own.
