2007 Cuvaison Pinot Noir BlockF5 Carneros

I had the pleasure of visiting the tasting room of Cuvaison in Carneros to start my Napa visit back in June. What a wonderful experience tasting great wine, relaxing on the patio overlooking the vineyards. My purchase was the 2007 Pinot Noir Block F5 a truly awesome wine.

In the glass the aroma of raspberry and cherry are very pronounced. Slight hint of vanilla and spice. Beautiful color.

Classic Pinot and absolutely love this wine. Juicy cherry starts your taste off followed by strawberry and finishing with a nice warm spice. Perfect balance of flavors and they flow nicely from start to finish. You will feel spoiled drinking this Pinot, it's that good.

Bravo Cuvaison for a wonderful Pinot Noir! Folks stop by the tasting room in Carneros and enjoy the beautiful scenery, the friendly tasting room hosts and some outstanding wine. Tell them hello!
