2020 Cuvée des Cendres
Cuvée des Cendres (“From the ashes”) represents the unwavering resolve of the California farmers, vintners and winemakers who have faced so many devastating fires over the last few years. In our case, it is not a phoenix rising, but a duck. After all we are Canard Vineyard. We lost all of our Napa Valley estate wines in the 2020 Glass Fire, including our much beloved Coucher de Soleil Estate Rosé. In a true multi-AVA collaboration, our French trained winemaker got to work and sourced some beautiful high altitude Grenache from Paso Robles, CA and made the wine in Sonoma, CA. This Provence inspired rosé is crisp, bright with beautiful notes of strawberry, tropical fruits, citrus and a hint of hibiscus. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this limited production wine will be donated to the Napa Valley Community Disaster Relief Fund to support those who have lost so much in the wake of the fires.
