Sutter Home Winery:
The history of Sutter Home Winery dates back to the late 1800's, when a Swiss-German immigrant named John Thomann established a small winery and distillery in the heart of California's Napa Valley. Although much has changed for the Trincheros and Sutter Home, the motto and philosophy originated by their father more than a half-century ago remains the same: "A great product for a fair price."

The history of Sutter Home Winery dates back to the late 1800's, when a Swiss-German immigrant named John Thomann established a small winery and distillery in the heart of California's Napa Valley. Although much has changed for the Trincheros and Sutter Home, the motto and philosophy originated by their father more than a half-century ago remains the same: "A great product for a fair price." After resurrecting Sutter Home in 1948, the Trincheros struggled to keep the family winery afloat, imbuing it with the values of hard work, ingenuity, humility and integrity that have characterized them ever since. Each member of the family played a vital role in keeping the business running: Mother Mary Trinchero kept the books, younger children Vera and Roger helped on the bottling line, while older brother Bob assisted his dad, Mario, and uncle John in cleaning out tanks and barrels. The family's cohesion kept Sutter Home together and eventually made it the success it is today. With its creation of White Zinfandel in the early 1970s and the introduction of high-quality, affordably priced varietal wines during the 1980s and '90s, Sutter Home became a household name and the second largest, independent family-run winery in the U.S. Read less

In contrast to the La Riotte where the bouquet was nicely recovered from the bottling and the palate was agitated the Bel Air was still fairly closed from the recent bottling but the wine had snapped nicely back into focus on the palate. As I observed last year the Taupenots parcel in the premier cru of Bel Air are thirty years of age and these vines are now really starting to hit on all cylinders. The reticent nose on the 2011 offers up scents of red and black cherries gamebirds cocoa nutskins lovely soil tones and a touch of cedar. On the palate the wine is back on form after the mise delivering lovely focus and balance in its full-bodied format with ripe tannins tangy acids and a very good core of fruit. This will be lovely. 2021-2050. John Gilman.

Fresh and vibrant, tight and juicy, with blackberry and floral flavors, persisting onto a jazzy finish. Shows presence and intensity. Drink now through 2018.

Made with Cabernet Sauvignon (60%) and Merlot, the 2011 Guidalberto opens to dark, rich concentration and beautiful aromatic intensity. You really feel the weight and importance of the wine thanks to its shapely aromas of dark fruit, plum, spice and bitter chocolate. The mouthfeel is incredibly supple and the rich density is long lasting. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2022. A lean, taut red, firmly grounded by dense, fine-grained tannins, with cherry, berry, spice and black pepper aromas and flavors. The finish echoes with fruit and spice. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Sangiovese. Best from 2016 through 2027. 30,000 cases made. -BS

65% semillon 35% sauvignon blanc. Fermented in barrel then aged in 40% new oak. Planted on large gravel soils. A lovely mix of lemon rind grapefruit and other bright citrus aromas balanced with deeper notes of orange marmalade quince and a touch of beeswax. This is deliciously fresh and wonderfully focused with loads of grapefruit passion fruit and citrus. Medium to full in body with a long mineral-laden finish that gains verve from persistent and lively acidity. Enjoy upon release and over the following 10 years. Geoffrey Binder.

Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2011 Shiraz Viognier offers notes of ripe blackberries, cassis and tar with an undercurrent of mocha, raw meat and pepper. Medium-bodied, the palate is youthfully fruited and taut with a crisp acid line and low to medium level of grainy tannins, finishing long and peppery. Drink it now to 2016+.
