2018 LE PICH NAPA VALLEY CABERNET SAUVIGNON

Named after the golden eagle and humbly crafted to be strikingly impressive, stately, and balanced, Le Pich wines inspire without arrogance or boastfulness. Rising star winemaker Julien Fayard learned his craft at Chateau Lafite Rothschild before gaining even more experience as Director of Winemaking for Philippe Melka at elite Napa Valley producers like Lail, Gemstone, Hundred Acre, and Mastery crafts these wines.

Drawing from several celebrated regions throughout Napa Valley, each vineyard and unique micro-climate elevates the final complex blend. The net result is that Le Pich is one of our best-selling brands of all time, and one that we first introduced in their inaugural 2009 vintage back in 2012, and never stopped singing their praises.

2018 HEIR APPARENT SPRING MOUNTAIN DISTRICT CABERNET SAUVIGNON

Heir Apparent winemaker Dwight Bonewell is known for his mastery of assemblage, creating luxury-style Napa Cabernet Sauvignons from some of the valley’s best vineyards. This wine hails from the Spring Mountain District, a region of small vineyards split by springs and streams, with 20 different soil types creating a patchwork of different terroirs, contributing to an extensive range of complexity in concentrated mountain fruit.

There are only 1000 acres planted within the Spring Mountain District appellation’s 8,600, but the wines from the area are recognized worldwide for their signature supple, balanced tannins and deeply pronounced flavors. 2018 was a cooler vintage, providing longer hang-time, allowing more significant flavor development that transformed this wine into a vast kaleidoscope of fruit, earth, spice, minerals, and much more that you don’t want to miss!

2016 ZUIDEMA MCGAH VINEYARD RUTHERFORD GRENACHE

Freed from a one-acre block of gnarly head-trained Grenache vines that were nearly re-planted to Cabernet, Zuidema Grenache was 30 years in the making and is a passion project by one of Napa’s most respected winemakers. Rudy Zuidema is the winemaker for Mastery and has held winemaking positions at Robert Craig, Honig, and Ehlers Estate, to name a few. His pensive winemaking style results in balanced, complex wines, deep with individuality and varietal truth. At $38, the value is unmistakable.

Sourced from the McGah Vineyard in Eastern Rutherford, Zuidema Grenache powerfully reflects the area’s nutrient-rich, rocky soils and ideal microclimate. The Gobelet trained vines yield various ripeness levels, and that lack of perfect consistency is what Rudy looks for to create the naturally rustic complexity in his wine.

Analytically hand-harvesting, de-stemming, native yeast fermenting, and three times daily punch overs for 10-12 days, Rudy’s cumulative knowledge over the past 30 years is commanding in this wine. If you’re looking for something a little different from one of Napa Valley’s greatest terroirs, this is it.

2017 RAPP RANCH NAPA VALLEY CHARDONNAY

Some of the most memorable Chardonnays offer a brilliant play between tension and elegance. Rapp Ranch’s 2017 Napa Chardonnay is a stunning example and arose from two different sites that work beautifully together, and harmoniously accentuate the best qualities from one another. This liquid gold was also made by Rudy Zuidema, whom you might recognize as the winemaker for Mastery.

The 2017 vintage intertwines fruit from the Truchard Vineyard, which lies just up the hill from Lee Hudson’s Vineyard, as well as the Poseidon Vineyard, which sits directly on the Napa Valley Marina. The Truchard block sits between Far Niente and Nickel and Nickle’s rows and contributes the incredibly opulent and expressive fruit.

The Poseidon Vineyard is planted in clay soils and contributes an electric acidity that lifts the richer fruit from Truchard. It’s the power and muscle behind the pure and delicious Truchard fruit. This beauty is simply one of my favorite Napa Chardonnays that I’ve tasted this year. With 232 cases made, don’t wait to stake your claim.
