As Cloisonne has grown our line up of wines we have continued to focus on California's finest regions. From Sonoma Coast and Alexander Valley to Mendocino and Napa the 2016 through 2018 vintages had smaller harvests, but beautiful growing seasons. Delivering wines of exceptional ripeness and balance.
In the winery, we focused on maintaining the bright fruit by only aging in French oak for a few months and usually only with 10-30% new oak. Allowing the fruit aromas and flavors to shine while delivering a complex set of wines that we are truly proud of. We hope you enjoy our latest bottlings.
Deep garnet in color. Cherry, smoky spice and floral aromas jump out of the glass. Dark cherry, cola, and spice flavors are vibrant and engaging. Held in French oak for 9 months. Very balanced with a long and lingering finish.
Golden yellow in color. Rich aromas of granny smith apple, white flowers and citrus notes. Silky texture with flavors of apple, citrus, minerality and a wisp of oak. Finishes with a full and lingering expression of Chardonnay.
Pair with roasted chicken, salmon or richer seafood dishes. Also perfect to drink on its own as an aperitif.
A complex wine with layers of deep black fruits. Deep aromas of plum, cassis, black tea, cedar, cigar box, and licorice. Long finish with baking spices on the palate. Supple tannins that that add structure and weight to this special wine. Aged for 18 months using 100% French oak to create a masterpiece. This wine demonstrates why Napa Valley is considered one of the finest places in the world to grow Cabernet Sauvignon.
Bright purple hues in the glass with aromas of spicy red and dark berry and a rich mid palate. The finish is balanced with pepper, spice, red fruit and a caramel note. Aged for 19 months using a combination of American and French oak to create a distinctive wine from southern Mendocino County.
Bright and aromatic from the cooler reaches of Napa Valley. Explosion of grapefruit, pineapple and stone fruit with crisp acidity. Fermented 50% in stainless steel and 50% neutral oak to provide a balance of fruit with striking aromatics. The picture perfect 2018 vintage allowed us to showcase what Napa can do with this grape. Crisp and energetic, this balanced wine pairs well with seafood, Asian dishes or can be enjoyed on its own.
