Please join us on Wednesday, February 13th, any time between 4:30-7:30 pm, when we welcome Kimberly Jones of Kimberly Jones Selections, to our wine bar. Kimberly is a talented and passionate fine wine broker that we have had the pleasure of working with for many years. Her portfolio, which includes wines from across the globe, offers some of the very best Napa Cabernet, and we have selected the following five spectacular wines (out of hundreds of extremely tempting candidates) for you to taste next week! We look forward to sharing this special, curated flight of wines (which was incredible fun to assemble) with all of you, and discovering which you like best!
Stack House - Beautiful Cabernet from Ilaria and Esca winemaker, Anna Monticelli, formerly of Bryant Family. This is a seriously excellent value Napa Cab that stands out among its pricier counterparts.
Amici – Founded two decades ago by a group of friends who shared a love of great wine, Amici produces outstanding wines from some of Napa and Sonoma’s most prestigious vineyards. Winemaker, Tony Biagi’s résumé is impressive, considering he honed his craft at esteemed Napa Valley wineries including Duckhorn, Paraduxx, Plumpjack, Cade, Odette and Hourglass before joining the Amici team.
Dyer – Husband and wife, Bill and Dawnine Dyer, operate this very small production winery in the hills of Diamond Mountain, where the soils are extremely rocky and volcanic. They farm organically and produce intensely concentrated and stunningly polished, Bordeaux-style blends.
Melka - Originally an esteemed wine consultant for top labels including Dana Estates, Vineyard 29, Lail, and Brand, Philippe Melka along with his wife Cherie, established Melka Estates in 1996. They craft outstanding, limited production single vineyard wines from Napa Valley, Knights Valley and Bordeaux, as well as a more widely available CJ Cabernet sauvignon blend.
Ovid - Mark Nelson and Dana Johnson brought together the formidably talented team of Napa Valley vineyard manager star, David Abreu, consulting winemaker, Andy Erickson, and winemaker, Austin Peterson, to craft limited edition Bordeaux-style blends from their 15-acre organically certified vineyard on Pritchard Hill.
