2010 Cunat Reserve
2010 Cunat Reserve: After patiently waiting for several years, we are thrilled to offer this inaugural edition of our Cunat Reserve wine. This wine represents the best single varietal wine produced from our family vineyards in the Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley and demonstrates our commitment to quality farming, harvest management, and winemaking. We will make this wine each vintage, allowing the climate, terroir and fruit to ultimately determine the best case production and winemaking methods. As intended, the 2010 Cunat Family Reserve wine is a soft, medium bodied, full flavor red wine designed to stand on its own or pair elegantly with a wide variety of foods and flavors. The earlier ripening of these grapes provides rich ripe aromas of berry, plum and currants combined with earthy notes of cola nuts, leather and tobacco. Our year-long barrel aging regime adds additional complexity with flavors of caramel, coffee bean and mocha. Balanced and smooth in the mouth with hints of minerality, well developed tannins and an array of fruits this wine will cellar well over the next ten or more years and can also be enjoyed now with a variety of dishes including bacon wrapped shrimp, mushroom based dishes and more flavorful greens like chard and radicchio.
