Bouchaine Pinot Noir Carneros Bacchus Collection Gee Vineyard 2007

Member Review by vin0vin0:

Was afraid that this was going to be passed its prime. On first opening there was some earth and leather notes but after some air time it opened up nicely with the above and also some nice ripe black cherry, prune and nice acidity. Plenty of layers left and very enjoyable although definitely turning the corner.

Bouchaine Vineyards inhabits the oldest continually operated winery in the Carneros wine region. The site was first planted to vines and orchards in the mid-1800s by pioneer Boon Fly. In 1927, before the end of Prohibition, the property was purchased by Italian immigrant, Johnny Garetto. After the Repeal he operated perhaps the first winery with a tasting room in the region. Garetto shipped his wine to San Francisco and elsewhere from Buchli Station, a historic railway station located at the end of the road of the same name and the address of the Bouchaine property. facility1_1.jpgGaretto sold the ranch to Beringer Brothers in 1951. Beringer used the winemaking facility for the next thirty years making upgrades along the way. In 1981 Gerret and Tatiana Copeland, residents of Wilmington Delaware and long time admirers of the wines of Burgundy, purchased the facility from Beringer and established Bouchaine Vineyards. A massive renovation was completed in 1995 updating the winemaking facility with new technology and refurbishing the entire facility in a rustic style that garnered numerous awards from historic and architectural organizations. The most noteworthy change in winemaking style has occurred recently with the hiring of Michael Richmond as winemaker and general manager. Mike Richmond has over 30 years experience in Chardonnay and Pinot Noir production in the Carneros including his founding Acacia Winery. He and the Bouchaine winemaking team have updated both farming and winemaking to bring the wines to a new standard of excellence. Read less
