Cattleya Cuvee No. 1 Pinot Noir, Russian River Valley 2018

$ 59.99

Winemaker Notes

A beautiful, shimmering dark ruby profile from rim to core, the 2018 Cattleya Cuveé Number One Pinot Noir showcases the best the Russian River Valley has to offer. The epitome of purity, this wine bursts from the glass aromatically with notes of ripe raspberry, black cherry, and strawberry cream. A blanket of soft, velvety tannin envelops juicy flavors of red currant, crushed strawberries, and blackberry crisp. The cool growing climate from which this cuvée is born, provides a backbone of age-worthy acidity that suggests patience in opening your next bottle will be greatly rewarded.

Critical Acclaim

"...a silky texture and perfumed, spicy fruits, framed by grainy tannins and juicy acidity, finishing long and layered. Wow!"
94 Pts. Jeb Dunnuck
I was able to taste two Pinot Noirs from Bibiana. Coming from the Russian River and first made in 2014, the 2018 Pinot Noir Cuvee Number One comes from a mix of the Pommard, 115, and 114 clones and was completely destemmed and aged in 30% new French oak. Its vivid ruby/purple hue is followed by a killer bouquet of ripe strawberries, raspberries, candied violets, orange peel, and sweet spices. This carries to a medium to full-bodied Pinot Noir that has loads of fruit and texture, yet shines for its elegance, silky tannins, and terrific balance. It has plenty of Russian River fruit yet is still an elegant, cool-climate styled effort.
