Ruby red in the glass, this sequel to last season’s inaugural vintage of Corinne Cuvée makes for a compelling curtain call. Purely Pinot Noir through and through, the wine’s nose is redolent with red fruit, rose petals, and earth. The attack unfurls with notes of wild raspberry and cherry, along with hints of strawberry pastilles and shaved graphite. Bright and beautifully balanced, the wine demonstrates a deliciously delicate structure, and a graceful, nuanced complexity that portends a deft, lingering landing. Fermented 21 days on skins (10% whole cluster) in open-top stainless-steel tanks, and aged 16-months in 55% new French Oak, the wine reveals a subtle, softly layered panoply of flavors and a delicate acidity. True to its namesake, Corinne, this offering is lithesome and lovely, revealing a fetching freshness and vitality that will enhance any occasion with delightful anticipation.

Somewhere in between deeply ruby-red, and inky dark purple, this head-turning 100% Petite Sirah shows off its noble origins with nothing less than unencumbered soulfulness. Forward yet inviting, the nose beckons to come hither, with suggestions of black fruit and licorice accompanied by wafts of violets, lavender, and shaved cedar. The subsequent attack does not demur, giving way to heady hints of black cherry, plum, baking spices, and sweet oak that in their combination, creates a weighty mouth that is roundly satisfying. Fermented in stainless steel tanks, the wine is aged 18 months in 100% new French oak puncheons. The end result is an ample, structured wine bearing silky tannins, balanced acidity and a sultry, lingering finish. Notwithstanding our predilection for wine analogies gone-wild; we believe that when the time comes to savor this selection; you cannot help but invoke a comparison to the legendary, incomparable Aretha Franklin. Whether or not you end up identifying with Aretha’s exclamation to “…feel like a natural woman”; we hope that you will join us to share in this acknowledgement.
