Got Malk? Napa’s best Cab of 2012

Winemaker Robbie Meyer (L’Angevin, Pierson Meyer) has crafted yet another amazing wine from Malk’s Griffin Vineyard in Stag’s Leap. The 2009 Vintage of the Malk Estate property is by far the best wine from this estate  —  I would say it even better than the great 2007 vintage! Malk 2009 Estate Cabernet  Sauvignon, Stag’s Leap […]

Small Napa White wins in wine stampede!

I rarely, if ever conduct blind tastings of Sauvignon Blancs, but decided to give it a try when a bunch of Francophiles challenged me to go head-to-head with California.  A few of my “French” friends provided “their” wines and I sourced the local market.  As you know I don’t stock the big names, I wanted […]
