Wine For Those Who Know
We have never thought of ourselves as outsiders (outside of Napa, in this case), but rather as missionaries. We know what kind of quality our home is capable of delivering, and we figure if we tell the story often and well enough, our audience will eventually find us.
If you are competing against the best in the world, there comes a time when you have to put it in the glass. The "underdog" points you get from producing wine in the Livermore Valley get used up quickly when the discussion turns to world-class Cabernet.
January 1, 2008 marks the date that our career-long aspirations finally run head-on into reality. On the first day of the New Year, our finest Cabernets to date will become available to order.
Our Premier Cabernet Collection represents our highest winemaking achievement of the vintage...2006 yielded six spectacular, singular examples of Cab...all sharing a wonderful depth of flavor and ageability, and each made in extremely small quantities.
I'll be blogging about the genesis of this program, what goes into our evaluation of the wines, and why we think they are worthy of passion, as we move forward.
