Cain Cuvee NV16 Napa Valley Red Blend

This shows an initial hit of Brett with an aroma set of dried savory herbs, potting soil, dried cherry, biochar, and currants. The palate is moderate in weight with earth, spent match-sticks, herbs, and some dried black fruits. D&M Tasting Notes

60% Merlot, 23% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Cabernet Franc

The estate is comprised of 10 hectares of vineyards, seven of which are in Meursault proper. The relative vine age is old: Perrières (40+ years), Genevrières (70+ years), Narvaux (45-60 year), etc. Harvest is all done by hand, and fermentations take place with indigenous yeasts. Otherwise, everything in the cellar is done to encourage finesse and delineation over sheer power. The white wines see only 10-20% new oak (max 25%for sone top wines) and are raised without battonage. They are aged 12 months in barrel, and then racked to tank for an additional six months of refinement as is now standard procedure at more and more of the top estates in Côte d’Or. For the reds, given the slightly more rustic line-up of appellations, the wines are all 100% de-stemmed with gentle extractions and relatively short cuvaisons. Here too, new wood use is judicious, with a max of 25-30% new. Winery Notes
