Cousins 2021 Santa Cruz Mountains Merlot
This wine was born out of our families' desire to bring our wines into alignment with Paris Agreement goals. The biggest ticket on a wine estate's carbon budget is the bottle, representing from 50% to 70% of a company's emissions. This wine is much more than a bottle-reuse piolet, however. We were on the hunt for grapes of the highest pedigree, made with the same integrity in the winery. This beautiful wine has a bright and engaging bouquet of plums and tobacco flowers. The palate is seamless and velvety with the hallmark poise and vibrancy of winemaking that preserves nature's heartbeat.
