St. Helena is known as the “heart of the Napa Valley” wine region of California. Ironically, this thriving town built on the wine industry gets its name from the 1850s St. Helena Chapter (named for the mountain in the distance) of the Sons of Temperance, an organization dedicated to the reform and prevention of “drunkards.” 
In 1861, German immigrant Charles Krug established the first winery in his name. He not only pioneered European varietal plantings, but also fermentation techniques and the careful selection of root stocks. In the mid 1870s, the Beringers followed in his footsteps, establishing what would become the longest continuous winery in Napa. The Phylloxera crisis at the end of the century hit the region hard, and Krug had to file for bankruptcy. A year after his death in 1892, James Moffitt purchased the land and began replanting vines using the Phylloxera “cure” of graftings onto American roostock. The Beringers, meanwhile, were Read more »

  • Titus Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2007


    Dark purple in the glass. Fairly volatile nose suggests alcohol, but there is also a good amount of black berry/fruit aromas. On the tongue the berry fruit jumps out, suggesting a New World take on Cabernet. However, the fruit does not blow me away. As the wine passes farther back there are some herbal and spice notes. A hint of sweetness on... Read More

  • OT I grew up in St. Helena and moved to Santa Rosa in 1973 where I lived until 1980. I worked at Korbel and then at Chateau St Jean where I helped set up their Graton facility and through their first crush. They bottled their first sparkling wine under the label of Shadow Creek. I moved to Santa Barbara in 1980. Are you in Santa Rosa?  Read More

  • Turley the Label Cabernet Sauvignon 2011


    Perfectly functional wine. I like it as a daily drinker, but it is not of the style that I expect from a Napa CS. Light fruit on entry. Its easy to pronounce this one as balanced since it is not a terribly complex wine. One dimensional describes it for me. Light on tannins and acidity leads me to the conclusion that this one is not a long a... Read More
