Three great friends – One goal: to create something worth appreciating, like the time they’ve spent together. They searched for an area rich in heritage, resources, and committed winemakers which took them 2,297 miles west from their homes in Kentucky to Napa Valley. They traveled to California time and again. Wine was shared, stories were told, and their idea was born. At the helm is Thomas Rivers Brown, one of Napa Valley’s most distinctive and acclaimed winemakers.(FYI: Post Parade
refers to the moment when thoroughbred horses walk onto the racetrack minutes before stepping into the starting gate.)

Amazingly intense wine from start to finish. Dark purple hue and stunning aromas of black stone fruit, chocolate and a touch of toastiness greet you on impact. This is an extraordinarily well-crafted wine that is lush on the palate, loaded with gorgeous jammy black stone fruits, chocolate, a touch of espresso and toasty vanilla that are in-sync with the right touch of acid. The wine lingers on the finish for a good 30 seconds! Only 250 cases produced.
2013 Tasting Notes from Winemaker Thomas Rivers Brown:
“2013 encapsulated all the good points of the previous growing season and then took it up a notch. The transition from budbreak to bloom to veraison to harvest was extremely well spaced out. Temperatures stayed mild, with only one heat spike above 100 degrees in late June, and there was zero rain until November once all the fruit had been brought into the winery. There’s always an element of mystery when it comes to how a wine will turn out in the end, but right from the beginning, the 2013 vintage wines showed so well. Undoubtedly the best vintage since 2007, the 2013 Post Parade resonates with light airy aromatic notes, a complex and intricate fruit core, mouth coating concentration and a finish that lingers and leaves you wanting more before it’s gone away.”—Thomas Rivers Brown Winemaker
Robert Parker 93 Points: “Thomas Brown makes the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon from two well-known vineyards, the Tench Vineyard in Oakville, which is located on Oakville Bench (and made famous by Russell Bevan), and the Redhead Vineyard, which is back on Soda Springs Road. There are 425 cases of this beauty, which displays a dense ruby/purple color and notes of lead pencil shavings, blackberry, cassis and a touch of toasty oak in a full-bodied, layered, concentrated style. Drink it over the next 15 or so years.”
