White Rock Vineyards is situated in a small valley in the southern foothills of the Stag’s Leap Range. The estate began making wine in the 1870’s. The Vandendriessche family continues in the tradition of natural sustainable farming, since 1977. Volcanic ash soils, hillside vines, cooler climate, hand crafting on the land and in the cave make these wines complex, concentrated and with a mineral character expressing the earth itself. The first 20 vintages were crafted by Henri, the latter ones by their Son Christopher who has a great portfolio of wine experience under his belt. He gained valuable experience from working with John Kongsgaard, Chateau, David Ramey, Doug Shafer, Remelluri in Rioja (Spain), Pape-Clément (Bordeaux, France) and Clark Claudon. He is also the day-to-day winemaker at Hudson!

The 2007 vintage was a fabulous year for Napa Cabernet. The White Rock Laureate tastes like a lot more expensive wine than its $47.99 price tag, really! The wine is richly structured and flavorful. It has seductive aromas of blackberry, coffee and mocha. On the palate, this rich, full bodied wine greets you with a core of plum, licorice, vanilla, chocolate and black currants. The wine is very well balanced and nuanced, with a long finish of dark cocoa. This wine is showing nicely now and will age for another 15 years! I am a big proponent of decanting and this wine is no different.
