Non-vintage "Cousins Cuvée", Red Wine, Russian River Valley

SOLD OUT - Please call for availability

"Cousins Cuvée" non-vintage red wine is a newer release for Mueller Winery, and represents a new style of wine for us as well. In order to produce an everyday red wine with complexity and consistency, we borrowed from an idea used in Portugal for producing non-vintage Port wine. In this system, multiple vintages are blended to produce a wine which does not change dramatically from year to year. "Cousins Cuvee" Red Wine is a blend which spans several vintages of Pinot Noir, Syrah and Zinfandel, all from the Russian River Valley. The majority of the blend is Pinot Noir.

Our daughter, Emily, suggested the name for our new blend. The name "Cousins Cuvée" is an homage to three cousins; Emily, Kevin and Tyler, all closely involved in producing Mueller wines. "Cousins Cuvée" has a sparkling medium-cranberry color.

This wine is loaded with blueberry and black cherry aromas; medium bodied with tangy raspberry flavors and balanced acidity. Tannins are soft and fine grained, with a finish that is long and flavorful. This delicious wine is ready to enjoy today. 168 cs produced
