LAST CALL 4  for TWO stunning  Pinot Noir releases by Winemaker of the Year

Bibiana González Rave is the founder and winemaker of Cattleya Wines. She is also the wife of star winemaker Jeff Pisoni. Born and raised in Colombia and trained as a winemaker in France, she moved to California in 2007 to settle into making extraordinary wines. In her words: “Since my early teenage years, my dream has been to make wine. At a very young age, I was fortunate enough to begin learning how to make wine in France. I trained myself while working with some amazing winemakers who showed me the importance of loving the land, how to respect the farming itself, and to focus on the many details that go into making each drop of wine in each and every bottle.” She  also made the wines at Pahlmeyer, and produces “Shared Notes” wines with her husband Jeff Pisoni. All those ingredients together and you have one of the best winemakers in the country!

Cattleya 2021 “Cuvee Number One” Pinot Noir,
Russian River Valley

GGWC 69.99 
Use code CATTLEYA during checkout (OK to mix & match with #8)

A very opulent, broad-shouldered wine that is loaded from start to finish with lush fruit. Stunning aromas and a lush body loaded with red cherry jam and a touch of licorice, exotic spices, tangerine, and dried flowers. The wine is Medium to full in body, layered with bright and forward fruit, leading into a long and very elegant finish. The Russian River Valley exemplified in a single bottling, this Pinot Noir packs incredibly perfumed notes of macerated dark berries, fresh rhubarb, and baking spice into its deeply ruby-hued core. Built upon pillars of vibrant acidity and soft tannins, supple flavors of blackberry tart and Bing cherry lead the way into a voluminous, velvety, and distinctly concentrated finish.

Winemaker Notes: “Cuvée Number One delicately balances the finest attributes of two distinct areas within the Russian River appellation: Green Valley and Santa Rosa Plain. This cuvée is comprised of small, individual row selections of two Russian River Valley vineyards, each influenced by their own unique relationship with the cool, maritime microclimate of this hallowed AVA. Clusters ripen slowly, allowing them to achieve perfect ripeness, intense aromatics, velvet-like tannins, and an array of red fruits of earthy characters.”

Cattleya 2021 “Cuvee Number Eight” Pinot Noir, Sonoma Coast “Inaugural Vintage”
GGWC 69.99
Use code CATTLEYA during checkout (OK to mix & match with #1)

The vineyard is at a high elevation on Sonoma Coast. The wine offers a deep ruby-purple color. Gorgeously perfumed aromas, with notes of red roses and red cherries, jump out of the glass. The palate is lush and silky textured. Loaded with nicely balanced fruit and the right amount of acidity. Flavors of pomegranate, black raspberries, and wild strawberries are beautifully balanced within this full-bodied Pinot, which offers very generous fruit and enough freshness. The wine has a long silky finish.
Winemaker Notes: “Sporting shades of deep purple not normally seen from this thin-skinned varietal, this Pinot Noir from the high elevation slopes of the Sonoma Coast opens with restrained notes of sweet spice and sandalwood before adding layers of dark berry compote and toasted vanilla. Dense and immensely concentrated, the palate offers superb structure surrounded by youthful notes of juicy blackberry, black tea, and Sous-Bois.”
