Never mind the six million album covers around the world that feature Andy Katz’s photographs, or his dozen books of gorgeous photos that grace countless coffee tables around the country, or the many awards on his mantel earned from five decades of work around the world. It was all an excuse. An excuse to drink world class wine. To learn what it takes to make world class wine. And to spend time with his young son Jesse.
Andy brought Jesse to the most famous vineyards on earth, from the heart of Burgundy to the hills of Tuscany. He may not have admitted it at the time, but Andy’s gambit worked. Barely a decade later, Jesse is now one of the most exciting — and accomplished — winemakers in the world, recently gracing the cover of Wine Enthusiast as a rising young star who is doing nothing less than “changing the way the world drinks.” The son of a man who, through his photographs, changes the way the world sees wine.

Parker 96 Points: “The deep garnet-purple colored 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is already delivering a lot of promising crushed black currants and black raspberries scents with underlying notions of cigars, dried herbs, lilacs and black olives. Full-bodied and full throttle on the fruit in the mouth, it has a wonderfully ripe frame of velvety tannins and great freshness, finishing very long.
Winemaker Notes: “Four hillside Cabernet vineyard sites, all with mineral-rich volcanic soils, are always the first focus of this blend. In 2016, our Merlot harvest was particularly incredible, yielding stunning acidity with full and silky tannins. It was a perfect partner to the vivid fruit profile of our Alexander Valley Cabernet vineyards. This year’s blend, 93% Cabernet and 7%Merlot achieves an uncommon, sophisticated balance.”
