A very nice blend, midway between a reserve and a single vineyard wine. The “Cuvée” series from Rex Hill is designed to express the nuances of several of the newest AVAs and sub-AVAs in the state. This excellent bottle is soft and approachable, with pretty fruit. It lacks a bit of concentration, but what is there is flavorful, with hints of rose petals and raspberries.
