Cuvee

959 visitors
Cuvée (or Cuvee on some English language labels) is a French term used on wine labels to denote wine of a specific blend or batch. The word originates from the French word cuve meaning vat. A cuvée wine may be numbered, indicating that the winemaker assigned a unique number to that blend. The word cuvée may also be used in terms such as vin de cuvée, cuvée speciale, or tête de cuvée to indicate a first-press wine or a wine that the winemaker believes to be among their finest.

2006 Bien Nacido Cuvee

This wine is 50% and 50% Viognier. The chardonnay comes from our first pick at Bien Nacido – Y Block. Most of the viognier is from Bien Nacido, with a small percentage of viognier ...morecoming from the Vogelzang vineyard in Santa Ynez. We pick the viognier ultra-ripe (around 26° brix), which on its own would be too heavy and cloying. At that ripeness however, the viognier aromatics are amazing. We blend it with chardonnay that was picked, in the case, at 22° brix, which reigns in the alcohol (13.8% here) and gives the wine structure and acidity.

2003 Cuvée PAU
Paso Robles

The 2003 J. Lohr Cuvée PAU has a saturated red-purple color with excellent hues. The nose is very reminiscent of its Bordeaux namesake, with coffee and forest floor notes combined ...morewith red currant and cherry fruit with hints of chocolate. The fruit is complemented with toasty and tarry French oak. The wine displays the full-bodied nature of Cabernet Sauvignon with rich currant fruit and mid to rear structure from both the fruit and the oak. On release, this wine will already have one year bottle age but will age well into the future. In its youth it should be enjoyed with a hearty steak, or as it ages, with beef tenderloin and rack of lamb. This wine should be allowed to breathe or decant prior to serving.

2004 Estate Cuvée
Paso Robles

The traditional varietals of the Rhône region, Syrah and Grenache were the inspiration. We then added to the allure by blending with our dark, opulent, old vine Petite Sirah to cr ...moreeate the Estate Cuvée. Spicy fruit notes from the Grenache add to the nose and mouth, Syrah adds body, meat and tar aromas. The Petite Sirah contributes deep purple and red hues and a firm tannin backbone for textural length and extended aging.

2004 Cuvee Jeanne Marie
Santa Ynez Valley

Planted in 1999 by Dick and Jenny, the Williamson-Doré Vineyard is located in the eastern portion of the Santa Ynez Valley. This could actually be labeled as Grenache since it make ...mores up 80% of the blend, but then my mom’s name wouldn’t be on the label. There are plenty of bright red-fruit (pomegranate and watermelon) notes that make it easily accessible now. Yet there is some deeper, dark “stuff” hanging around out back that will bode well for some aging.

1995 Cabernet Sauvignon Premiere Cuvee

To our knowledge, no other California winery is releasing a wine of this age and quality level. We are blessed with great vintages thought the nineties and this wine represents a d ...moreefinite peak of quality. This is a penetrating, dimensional and truly elegant wine with great structure and lovely balance. It is quite drinkable now, but will reward even further aging, possibly as much as another 10-15 years. Superb length.

Cain Cuvée
Napa Valley

After more than fifteen years of development, Cain Cuvée has come of age! We have created a refreshing, vibrant cabernet blend that pleases the palate with plenty of complexity to ...morestimulate the senses.

Cuvée is the most eclectic of our three blends – not limited to a particular varietal formula. In this release, Merlot is present in the largest proportion while, collectively, the two Cabernets make up a slight majority. Finally, a dollop of Petit Verdot completes the blend. In the NV4, the 2004 vintage contributes the core, while the 2003 vintage adds additional finesse, polish, and complexity.

66% 2004, 34% 2003

45% Merlot, 39% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot

2005 Reflection Late Harvest Cuvee
Napa Valley

Reflection is the creation of our winemaker David Yorgensen. He suggested that we pick the left over remaining bunches that our grape pickers missed (only about a ton of grapes out ...more of 120 tons...). So we made a field blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot - yes, the same grapes that go into Seduction.



Enticing aromas of blueberry, vanilla and cedar lead into a core of intense berry fruit dominating the palate. Framed by pleasant sweetness and bright acidity, the modest tannins and ripe fruit yield to a velvety mouthfeel and lingering finish on this very small production late harvest red wine.

The back label reads:

Memories of you

Swirl in my glass

Wine on my lips

You in my heart

Only 45 cases of 375ML were made. 1 bottle limit per person. Counts toward 10% mixed case discount
