The best kept secret in the Napa Valley!  Red Cap Vineyards is a boutique producer of premium cabernet sauvignon and sauvignon blanc. Our 100% estate grown Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon (300 cases) is an exceptional expression of Howell Mountain fruit. Our single vineyard Rutherford Sauvignon Blanc (150 cases) is a real showstopper and a perfect match for a summer clambake..

  • I was fortunate to be able to attends last weeks ZAP Experience. As you might know this year’s event differed from those in years past as the event was broken down into additional components.  The trade and media portion of the Experience is now a discreet tasting, and the grand tasting has been broken out into sections, that took place on the g...

  • So far I’ve worked my way through a pretty impressive set of wines that would make for some splendid gifting. I’ve covered Cabernet, Pinot Noir, the wines of France and today I turn my attention towards Italy. Without a doubt my favorite wine producing country; Italy is home to more variety and styles of wine than anyplace else on the planet. As... Read More

  • I have a good memory and as with most people it is particularly astute when recorded painful moments in one’s life. Take for example 1994, when I finally broke into my stash of benchmark 1982 Barolo. We’re talking Marcarini, and Cascina Francia, Monprivato and Vietti. There were six bottles in all, and I carefully decanted them before cooking di... Read More

  • On my recent visit to Piedmont I included five producers in the neighboring village of Barbaresco since I've often given them short shrift. Known as the Queen of Nebbiolo, in contrast to Barolo the King, Barbaresco has a reputation for being a softer, more elegantly styled example of Nebbiolo. While this is undoubtedly true, the accompanying sen... Read More

  • So we have some interest in having a West Coast meet-up (or you can call it a throw-down) for Pinot.  Here's my opening proposal:  We'll do it very close to the Oakland Airport, to save those who are traveling in from out of town (like Emark and JonDerry) from having extra travel if they want to fly.  This would give LuchaVino a chance to attend...

  • I wrote yesterday about the 2009 vintage in Barolo and today I begin reporting on the wines tasted. with over 30 winery visits o the region last month there's a lot of wine to report on. I've included my notes below, broken down by visit in roughly chronological order. As you can see not everyone was able to present the 2009 Barolo for each of t... Read More

  • Hi there! I am planning on doing a road trip through Provence and Southern Rhone this summer. I have a general idea of where to go but was wondering if any of you had any tips for affordable and fun wineries to visit or MUSTs in Southern France. I was thinking Saint Tropez, Bandol, Cassis, Aix en Provence, Avignon, Tavel, Gigondas, Vacqueyras, B...

  • Rosés come around just once a year. This is lamentable or not, depending on your opinion of them. With such a sudden influx, it’s imperative that I taste as many as possible as quickly as possible. This is the first round-up of rosés from the summer of 2012. You can expect another in several weeks, but these 40 wines, along with the dozen or so ... Read More
