Notre Vue

2018 Notre Vue Proprietor's Red Blend

2018 Notre Vue Proprietor's Red Blend
Sonoma County

A true Bordeaux-style wine in every sense, this is as close to a left-bank blend as you will find in California.  The refinement in this wine is a result of slow, careful fermentation and an exacting barrel regimen, mirroring very closely traditional french techniques.
750ml

"With classic aromas of black currant, plums, and cigar box, this wine screams "Bordeaux".  The palate is at once refined, active, and rich, with waves of cassis, red fruits, and chocolate, finished by fine tannins."

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
This is a classic combination of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, and Malbec. It offers aromas of black currants, plums, elderflower liqueur, pencil shavings, and vanilla bean. The palate follows with cassis, ripe red fruits, chocolate, and firm tannins.
Vineyard Notes
Sonoma County is blessed with an abundance of volcanic soils that drain quickly and produce small, more intensely flavored and colored berries without aggressive canopies (leaves). Reaching above 1,000 feet in elevation, the vineyards of the AVA tend to have excellent sun exposure. Afternoon temperatures are moderated by the cooling Pacific breezes out of the Russian River Valley. The rich, perfectly ripened fruit is used to craft the Notre Vue ‘Bordeaux-style” blends.
Winemaker Notes
The Grapes for this wine were harvested by hand at night and quickly transported to the winery. After a period of cold-soak, native fermentation took place in a controlled manner. A true Bordeaux-style wine in every sense, the refinement in this wine is a result of slow, careful fermentation and an exacting barrel regimen, mirroring very closely traditional French techniques, including the practice of frequent racking.
