Tasting NOTES

Crafted to satisfy the contemplative connoisseur, yet approachable for the casual imbiber, and, affordable for all the above. Refreshing aromas of black cherries and blackberries lifted by vanilla and warm baking spices lead into a light-to-medium bodied palate of more dark fruit, savory cocoa and earth, while dusty tannins and mouth-watering acidity leave a lingering freshness. As with previous vintages, this wine is ready to pair with a myriad of cuisines and occasions, or enjoy on its own, knowing it will leave you clamoring for more.

Vineyard NOTES

Relying on the Bundschu Family's 161+ years of Sonoma vineyard knowledge, the grapes for Mountain Cuvée are sourced from our Rhinefarm estate as well as fruit hand-selected from vineyards along the Mayacamas Mountain range.

Production NOTES
