This single-vineyard wine, a sought-after favorite of Bouchaine Bacchus wine Club members and those in-the-know, comes only from the dry-farmed (non-irrigated) Gee vineyard. The Gee vineyard is a small 16-acre property across the road from the winery, where the rare practice of dry farming has been in use for many years. It produces small yields of grapes with uncommonly concentrated flavors. We then coax the wine into a beauty sleep in French oak barrels for approximately 11 months, which enhances the already-complex flavors even further. Less than 250 cases of this wine are produced, and only in those vintages where the wine is simply exceptional will it be released as its own bottling.

When you ask about the wine varietal that the Carneros appellation is most notable for, Pinot Noir invariably comes to mind. The long harvest in 2006 provided us a veritable smorgasbord of grape ripeness and maturity, all of which enhanced the character of this Carneros Pinot, adding richness and layers of flavor. The resulting wine is redolent of cherries and berries with a touch of earthiness and orange Peel. More and more people have discovered what longtime Pinot Noir aficionados have always agreed: that Pinot Noir is the most versatile red wine and pairs beautifully with many foods. Start with anything grilled or smoked. Try it with blackened salmon, pork tenderloin braised with herbs, pan seared chicken, or mushroom risotto accented with truffle oil.
