Description

Bouchaine’s 100-acre estate vineyard lies on the southern border of Napa Valley’s Carneros district, overlooking the San Francisco bay with the financial district in the distance. Fog, wind, and the cold night time temperatures of this unique geographical area lend a distinctive regional identity to our Pinot Noir.

Growing Season
2019 delivered a late but incredible harvest. Beautiful weather during bloom allowed for a bounty of exceptional fruit. A cool, foggy summer with no heat events ensured slow even ripening, vibrant acidity and superb flavor development.

Vinification
The Terraces curl around the slopes overlooking the bay on the south side of the estate. They capture predominantly morning sun and enjoy some protection from the prevailing west winds. These soils are the most well drained and volcanic on the estate. Consequently, the wines are quite distinctive, showcasing the savory intensity. A generous portion of new French oak lends a sweet spice component to the layered flavors from this dry-farmed site.
