Terroir, terroir, terroir!
The idea of terroir is the fundamental intellectual exercise in wine and the source of its desirability. Terroir is quality; it is the reason wines taste differently, the very reason we can separate great wine from good wine. Having been educated in Burgundy, where site differences have been measured to a hair’s breadth since Medieval times, I wanted to show the dynamic differences in Napa Valley’s terroir – one the most ecologically and geologically complex places on Earth. Our Single-Vineyard collection of wines is comprised of four wines from four of Napa’s greatest appellations:
PanPan Crac Crac
2016 Knights Valley late-harvest dessert wine of Semillon with a touch of Sauvignon Blanc - 375ml bottle
From the very top of Spring Mountain, the cool climate gives this wine keen power and endless age-ability. Heady and rich. Available by allocation October 2020
Her Majesty's Secret Service
Pritchard Hill region. An aristocratic structure of soft, royal, velvety tannins; great black fruits, cassis and blackberry, combined with spice, cedar and tobacco with a kiss of truffle. Available by allocation October 2020.
A tiny Cabernet Sauvignon gem, a half-acre of the St. Helena’s coveted “red dirt.” Available by allocation October 2020.
