The term Cuveé derives from the French word "cuve" meaning tank or vat. On wine labels it means a blend or batch. Our Cuveé Stephanie is a blend of 2 Pinot Noirs from 2 different vineyards in Santa Barbara County and is 50% whole-cluster fermented. With all this going on, you know it's complex and believe us, it's absolutely delicious!
This blend is named for co-owner Stephanie Belmore-Schwartz, and it just so happens that the wine is a lot like her... it's bold, complex, sexy and absolutely delightful!
Visual: Dark cherry sunburst
