WPA (Wine Projects Administration), a play on the old work projects administration that was part of the new deal in the 1930’s, is the latest venture of one of California’s most acclaimed winemakers. His wines have garnered big press and accolades with every release. His young(er) vines show very well, but he is very picky and decided to create an additional label “WPA” to find a good house for this amazing fruit. He did ask to remain “nameless” as the sources used for WPA are top-notch and he did not want offend the vineyard owners.
Fun project, great wine, entertaining label, great price/quality ratio. A real wow-factor here is the fact that the wine is only $24.99 for a wine of this quality and caliber. Beautiful aromas of green apple, white peaches and a touch of brioche. Medium bodied with buoyant flavors coating the palate. Clean with just the right touch of acidity. Great wine for the upcoming holidays!
As the case with the Chardonnay, this Pinot Noir offers a great quality/price ratio. Stunning aromas jumpoing out of the glass. Hints of sweet red cherries, a touch of violets and berries. On the palate, this medium to full bodied Pinot will please many, especially the price conscious shopper! Great texture and well-balanced fruit/acid ratios. Layered from start to finish with a good 5-7 year cellaring potential. 400 cases produced.
