Tasting NOTES

Whether novice or aficionado, the quaffable, affordable, yet seriously crafted and complex Mountain Cuvee always provides drinking pleasure to a wide audience and name-an-experience. Welcoming aromas of cherries, raspberries, warm vanilla, and a little cola lead to a medium bodied wine framed by soft tannins and lively acidity. The silky texture showcases layers of lush cassis and red fruit with savory cocoa powder revealed on the finish. Created for life's sooner-rather-than-later enjoyments.

Vineyard NOTES

Relying on the Bundschu Family's 150+ years of Sonoma vineyard knowledge, the grapes for Mountain Cuvee are sourced from our Rhinefarm estate as well as fruit hand-selected from vineyards along the Mayacamas Mountain range.
