This Pinot Noir didn't quite measure up. It was okay but better examples can be found, however at this price range you will likely be pleased. Perhaps it was the year rather than the vineyard.

Tried in the tasting room. Tasted two bottles - one that was opened at that time and one that was opened the day before. First day bottle had a very fruity nose and palate - plum and pomegranate. Some spice on the finish. Second day bottle was smokey with a nose of BBQ coal. The palate was overriped blackberry with some raspberry and still with the spicy finish.

Nose/Palate: Well knit flavors of wild strawberries, licorice, orange peel, with a long finish. Overall Impression: An elegant and restrained Pinot Noir with fine balance and delicious fruit.

Cu vai son [koo veh ZOHN] - The French term for the period when grape juice is kept in contact with the skins and seeds during both fermentation and maceration. Critical in the making of red wines, cuvaison allows color, tannins, and aroma to be transferred from the skins and seeds to the juice.

Winemakers notes:Cuvaisons Carneros Pinot Noir comes from our 400-acre estate in the southern part of Napa Valley. This cool climate vineyard allows near perfect conditions year after year to produce world class Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Merlot. Controlling all farming aspects within our own vineyard gives Cuvaison an advantage in producing the best quality fruit therefore minimizing over manipulation at the winery. Winemaker Steven Rogstad, sums it up best, My style and philosophy are based on expressing the unique character of our estate grapes and doing as little as possible to them. When one has such wonderful fruit to work with, that should be ones emphasis.

Wine Spectator ReviewRated 90Firm, with rich, spicy plum and black cherry fruit thats tight and well-structured, with a nice balance between the texture, acidity and tannins, which carry the flavors. Drink now through 2011.Wine Tasting NotesWarm tones of red currant. Wild strawberries, spearmint, clove and raspberry jam. Fresh rainier cherry fruit with a hint of licorice and a sweet, waxy finish. Brimming with bright red fruits and floral, spicy notes this wine is well balanced and well focused. The supple tannins are well backed by the fruit and acid, providing a wine of elegance and length.
