The naturally ripened fruit, selected from more than 50 separate vineyards, reveals layers of crisp and creamy textures that are rich and lingering.
Individually selected lots are kept separate during initial fermentation in order to highlight vineyard differences and specific strengths.
Wines destined for Cuvée M are yeast aged an average of 18 months, adding flavors of biscuit, bread dough, white blossoms and mocha to the wine. Disgorged as a Sec style (3.00% RS), Cuvée M’s final blend is enriched with a proprietary blend of late-harvest Muscat and Pinot Noir, then allowed to rest another three months to fully marry the dosage liquor with the base wine.
Cuvée M appeals to sparkling wine aficionados with a bit of a sweet tooth. It is a soft, elegant wine that showcases powerful ripe fruit flavors of Napa Valley.
Cuvée M displays a graceful stream of fine bubbles, a lovely peach-rosé hue, and fresh white and yellow stone fruit aromas complemented by notes of wild strawberry, fresh baked bread, vanilla and honey. Layers of ripe peach with subtle hints of mandarin orange combine with crisp citrus tones, leading to a long, satisfying finish.
