This year's Premiere Napa Valley offering from Miner Family Winery is a valley floor blend of Cabernet Sauvignon from three appellations - Yountville, Oakville and Rutherford. Founder Dave Miner, along with general manager Gary Brookman and winemaker Stacy Vogel, have chosen their favorite blocks from three select vineyards to create a Cabernet Sauvignon that reflects the impressive depth and richness of valley fruit. Aged 22 months in 60 percent new French oak, this wine offers generous black fruit flavors against plush tannins, allowing it to age gracefully for the next decade. Raise your paddle.

Winemaker, Stacy Vogel

In your typical "gal from North Carolina travels abroad and falls in love with wine" story, Stacy Vogel, as always, takes it to another level. After some post-graduate stints in health care and IT, she was hired on with a wine and beer distributor doing sales administration. There, she had access to wines from all over the world and was able to hone her tasting skills, and fell deeper in love.

So, obviously, she set her sights on California and a career in winemaking. After receiving her Master's Degree from the University of California at Davis wine program, she worked harvests in Burgundy and Australia before returning to the Golden State. Phew! Are you keeping up?

Since landing at Miner Family Winery in 2008, Stacy has managed to have two children and receive two promotions, the last one being named Winemaker in December of 2013.

Country born: United States

Education: M.S., Viticulture and Enology. University of California, Davis. 2004.
B.S, Biology / Chemistry. University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. 1999.

Years in the wine industry: 10-15 years

Winemaking Philosophy:
Maintain Miner's winemaking philosophy while continuing to build upon and elevate the wine's style.
