We’ve been up in the middle of the night hand-picking fruit the last two weeks, and are bursting with excited delirium to bring you this new 2019 Noisette Cuvée! We’ve also included the 2020 Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc to keep you stocked for the hot days ahead.
This Noisette represents the second release of this cuvée. This vintage is a blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Petit Verdot which come together to deliver intensity and poise. Vibrant notes of ripe plum, sage, wild game and cedar. Medium-bodied with firm tannins and a pleasingly long finish. Perfect for a pizza party or date night!
You’ll also notice something new on the back label of the Noisette. We thought we would leave a spot for you to add your own tasting notes, thoughts or simply draw a doodle of how the wine makes you feel! Did you open it with friends? Make sure they all join in to commemorate your time together.
We hope you’ve been sipping on the 2020 Sauvignon Blanc all summer like we have. We adore the floral notes that the Musque clone adds, and the crisp citrus acidity comes alive on the palate. The 2020 Chardonnay continues to impress with its elegance and freshness. What a stunner from the Muir Hanna Vineyard!

Notes about the 2019 Vintage
Abundant rainfall in the winter and spring left the soil nice and moist which was perfect for the long and mild summer. The valley was spared from any unusual weather events. A nice long string of foggy mornings helped to preserve freshness while the fruit enjoyed nice and even ripening.
