2018 Claude's Cuvee

buy wine $60.00

Our Claude's Cuvee starts with a cooler climate Syrah planted on North and East facing slopes on the G2 Vineyard in the Willow Creek District. Its a beautiful ruby color that's full bodied with ripe tannins. We used 40% whole cluster and barrel aged in 70% new French oak for 20 months. Savory herbs and dried flowers with rich, dark fruit preserves and accented with spice and a dusting of cocoa. Pairs nicely with BBQ Ribs or sausage stuffed mushrooms. Cases produced 247. Enjoy now until 2032.
