About This Wine:
Kajani is a proud Napa native who grew up riding horses and, later, raiding her parents’ wine cellar. Although she started her career in biotech, a few too many trips to European wine regions led to wistful dinner party comments… which led to working harvests… which led to a return to UC Davis for a Master’s in Viticulture and Enology.
Kajani fell hard for Burgundian wines, and built her winemaking career around crafting worthy California cousins. After nearly a decade of working with Carneros region Pinot Noir and Chardonnay as Saintsbury’s winemaker, she joined the Bouchaine family as head winemaker and general manager in 2015.
Bouchaine’s 2016 “Crescendo” Pinot Noir marries different clones from the winery’s Carneros estate vineyard, and showcases a cascade of fruit and spice nuances — a vinous masterpiece from a homegrown winemaker.
