In 1960 Henri Vandendriessche came to America from France to study economics at UC Berkeley. He and Claire met in 1967 and fell in love with Napa, as well as with each other. In 1977 they purchased the 64-acre estate just north of the town of Napa with two goals in mind: reviving an 1870’s winery estate to its ancient glory and raising their family on an estate that would reflect and encompass their values. They moved their young family into the converted old winery and made the farm their home. They replanted as much original vineyard as they could, and dug a cave system where they would make and cellar the wine. Always a family business, Henri oversaw all aspects of the enterprise, including the vineyard management, while Claire marketed and sold the wines. Their three children lived along with the seasons, helping and participating at each stage when time permitted. Today, the children run the winery. Christopher makes the wines, and Michael manages the vineyards. The sister Anne Marie is an accomplished cheese-maker for a local artisan creamery.

This White Rock 2019 Bordeaux Blend (Claret) shows off a ruby/purple hue.   Gorgeous aromas of sweet plums, blackcurrant notes jump out of the glass. The wine is full in body, the tannins are silky soft, the wine is lush and  fleshy, yet powerful and extremely elegant. The palate is loaded with bold red stone fruit, a whiff of cocoa and mint. This Claret is gorgeous and ready to drink now and will do so for a good 10 years. This cuvée is a blend of  71% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot all from the White Rock Estate.

Vinous 94 Points: “The 2019 is fabulous. A deep, potent wine, the 2019 possesses tremendous density, not to mention tons of pedigree. Deep red fruit, white pepper, chalk, blood orange and mint lend notable depth to this powerhouse. The tannins are pretty imposing, but there is plenty of fruit to keep things in balance. What a gorgeous, gorgeous wine this is.”
