Winemaker Ray Coursen Notes
This is the debut release of C’ést Si Bon (It’s so good”!) and we honestly couldn’t be more excited! It is made from grapes indigenous to the Rhone Valley in Southern France, yet very well suited to the terroir of the Sierra Foothills. This wine has delightful and intriguing aromas of dried raspberries, tangerine peel, white pepper, jasmine and pomegranate along with hints of leather, smoke and earth. On the palate, flavors of wild plums, black raspberries, Fuji apples and a hint of minerality lead to a creamy, sensuous mouth feel and genuinely long finish. The 2005 C’ést Si Bon is medium in body and amazingly well balanced with vibrant fruit, firm tannins and bright acidity. Bet you can’t just drink one glass! This wine wor ...more... ks amazingly well with all sorts of cuisine so use your imagination and enjoy. It really IS so good!
