|Article number:||2011, Buccella Katrina Eileen Cuvee, Cabernet Sauvignon,|
Named after our first-born daughter, Cuvée Katrina Eileen is primarily composed of fruit
from a vineyard in the Western Hills of Yountville, where yields are miniscule. The
extremely rocky soil of the vineyard produces concentrated clusters of perfectly ripened
Cabernet Sauvignon. In German, the name “Katrina” represents purity and fittingly, this
wine is made entirely from the Cabernet Sauvignon grape, providing a pure expression
of this decadent varietal. It also reflects our daughter’s personality with flavors that are
complex, unreserved and expressive.
Fresh blackberries along with notes of pastry crust are immediately evident in the glass. The
2011 Cuvée Katrina Eileen is a perfumed, voluptuous fruit focused wine with a rich
mouth feel and a long smooth finish with reminders of the sweet fruit found on the nose.
