The Bridesmaid is Back, and WAW (What A Wine)

 

After many years the Bridesmaid wines are being rebranded of sorts. Pam Starr (former Spottswoode winemaker) has been producing the Crocker & Starr/Bridesmaid wines for many years now. Crocker & Starr was always estate grown, Bridesmaid only partially. That has changed and so has the packaging. Gorgeous new labels and the same stunning wines, sort of a new (married) life for the Bridesmaid.

Deep ruby in color, this wine displays a gorgeous nose of dark ripe plum, cocoa powder, hot tamale candy, and sandalwood spice.  Silky friendly tannins and medium body elegantly frame the fruit on the palate which lingers through the wine’s lengthy and seamless finish. This blend of Cabernet Franc is drinking beautifully now and will cellar well over the next ten years.   

Pam Starr: “A.V.A. stands for American Viticulture Area and for us it represents the culmination of sustainable viticulture, resurrection of our 1870’s winery and classic winemaking. The bouquet on the front label ties into our rich history, as it and our 1870’s Victorian home originate from a Sears & Roebuck catalog.  Inspired by the great wines of the right bank of Bordeaux, our A.V.A. St. Helena blend of Cabernet Franc serves as the perfect introduction to the Crocker & Starr portfolio. “

Robert Parker 93 Points: “The 2018 A.V.A. Napa Valley Blend of Cabernet Franc is composed of 70% Cabernet Franc, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Malbec and 10% Petit Verdot. Deep garnet-purple in color, it races out of the glass with fragrant notes of kirsch, black raspberries and Black Forest cake with hints of pencil shavings, crushed rocks and cinnamon stick. The palate is medium to full-bodied with a firm backbone of finely grained tannins and a lively line supporting the perfumed red and black fruits, finishing on a lingering mineral note. “
