2016 Cuvée, Sonoma County

Sonoma County

Sold Out

Overview

This Kokomo Cuvée is a focused blend from a single vineyard in Redwood Valley in Mendocino County. Tollini Vineyard is owned and farmed by third generation farmer Alvin Tollini, who grew up on the vineyard. Kokomo started getting fruit from Tollini Vineyard in 2006 when we made our first Carignan with fruit from their 100-year old Carignan vineyard. We quickly fell in love with the site and the farmer, and started to also source Grenache and Petite Sirah in 2010, which we then used in our Cuvée.

Tasting Notes

For the 2016 Cuvée we wanted to make a focused and terroirdriven blend to show off this beautiful site. It is a late ripening site that is always the last fruit of the year that we bring in!
