The 2007 Cuvée de Noirs is a wine of tremendous complexity and length made from two esteemed mid-Valley vineyards: 78% Pinot Noir from California Soleil and 22% Chardonnay from Hall Vineyard. It presents aromas of citrus, red fruits and white chocolate with hints of melon, tea, and toast. On the palate is an even more complex combination of flavors, including tropical fruits, citrus, red berries, chocolate, tea, and bread. The finish is long and satisfying, a classic example of excellent New World Sparkling Wine.
