The name Belle Cousine is a reference to Pamela Fairbanks de Villaine, Larry Hyde’s lovely cousin who is the wife of Aubert de Villaine of Burgundy. It is Pamela who brings these visionary viticultural families from Burgundy and the Carneros region of Napa Valley together to make wines that express the character of place, with that rare minerality so dear to the Burgundian palate.

Very rich aromas of blackcurrant and cherries but also very fresh and fragrant. Suave and full-bodied with discreet power and concentration that is balanced with fine acidity to give it drive and freshness on the palate. The wine is harmonious and complete, with ripe tannins and spice in the long finish.
Aging Potential: 15+ years

Production Notes
Following a cool summer, a heat spike in September caused severe heat damage to the grapes. The burnt berries had to be removed by hand in a lengthy elimination process and meticulous sorting at the winery was required. Harvest Dates: October 2 (Merlot); October 16 and 28 (Cabernet Sauvignon)
Production
Varietal Composition: 52% Merlot; 48% Cabernet Sauvignon Production: 562 cases (12/750ml)
