Winemaker Notes: Cattleya Wines are the result of a long and deep love story between my soul and wine. I am Bibiana—born and raised in Colombia, trained as a winemaker in France, and now growing roots in Sonoma County. All Cattleya wines are made with fruit sourced from beautiful sites, farmed by the greatest viticulturists and talented crews. My ultimate goal is to make wines with soul and character that are unique representatives of their terroir. My wine philosophy is simple: To produce unique wines of extreme purity, power, and nesse.

VINEYARD NOTES: Cuvée Number One is a blend of two clones grown in the same vineyard. This vineyard is located in the Green Valley AVA, a small and very distinctive area inside the Russian River Valley AVA. I selected two clones from this vineyard as we developed our program for the Russian River AVA blend: 115 Dijon and Pommard. Both are well known among winemakers for their speci c characteristics of aromatics and texture. I love the way Pommard brings much texture and mouth feel to a Pinot Noir blend. The vineyard is cane pruned with vertical shoot positioning, limited crop per vine, and a tremendous emphasis on optimal canopy management.

WINEMAKING NOTES: Each clone was fermented in its own small, stainless steel, open-top fermenter. Clone 115 Dijon was harvested on August 17, 2015 and the Pommard selection on August 20, 2015. Fruit was destemmed at 100% for both clones. After a 5- to 10-day cold soak, fermentation began; punch-downs were done daily throughout maceration. The wine fermented on the skins for 22 days, then was drained and barreled down for malolactic fermentation and aging. In 2015, each clone was fermented and aged in separate French oak barrels for 11 months of aging in the cellar. The wines are showing generous texture with soft tannins and a full bouquet of avors. The wine was bottled in January, 2016.

CRITICAL ACCLAIM


Jeb Dunnuck - "From the cooler Green Valley portion of the Russian River (it’s all from the Lakeview vineyard), the 2016 Pinot Noir Cuvée Number One comes from the Pommard and 115 clones and was brought up in a mix of new and used French oak. Beautiful red fruits, mulberries, flowers, and exotic spice notes, medium body, an elegant, yet rounded texture, and integrated acidity all emerge from this incredible Pinot Noir that has the class to drink nicely today, yet also evolve for a decade or more"


Wine Enthusiast - "Lavish black cherry makes for a very focused but rich nose on this bottling, which is enhanced with aromas of vanilla wafer, tart black plum skins and polished purple flowers. There's a breezy lightness to the palate at first, yet it shows powerful flavors of black plum, violet and baking spice, all riding a pretty ripping acidity."
