Q&A With the Winemaker
Q: Premiere Napa Valley wines are innovative and allow each winery to showcase the region's sense of exploration in fine winemaking. What kind of exploration did your Premiere Napa Valley wine allow you to do?
A: We were able to restrict yield to 12 clusters per vine and allow classic concentration of flavors, and yet pick early enough to maintain acid, balance and elegance.
Q: What was your inspiration for this offering?
A: This is our first production of the highly-touted Pritchard Hill area Cabs. The complexity and elegance from a young vineyard was outstanding.
Q: Fill in the blanks: I chose to make this wine from this particular ______________ because ______________.
A: I chose to make this wine from this particular Block One Clone 4 Cab because it was the most evenly balanced crop on the vineyard site.
Q: Why should a wine lover have a bottle of this wine in their cellar?
A: This wine will age for 20 years and yet will not breakdown and become tired due to the classic balance of flavor, acid, tannin and alcohol.
Q: Any quote, poem, lyric you feel represents this wine?
A: Rich and Lovely, like the daughter of a millionaire, Hollywood starlet.
