Napa Valley Chardonnay 2018

Ming L

Good mix of citrus and stone fruits. Creamy. A tad too much oak, but there is enough fresh acidity for balance. Easy drinking. — a month ago

Premiere Napa Valley Sleeping Denali Cabernet Sauvignon 2018


One of my favorites from Premiere Napa Valley 2020 #pnv20 #pnv2020 #napa only 5 cases produced. “A blend of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from two of the best AXR Napa Valley blocks
50% from Sleeping Lady Vineyard in Yountville and 50% from Denali Vineyard in the hills of St. Helena
100% barrel fermented from our finest barrels utilizing native yeast; unfined and unfiltered
Reflection of Jean Hoefliger’s pursuit to create a wine to push the envelope of Cabernet Sauvignon

AXR is a winery that pays homage to the past at their historic estate in St. Helena. AXR, named after the rootstock which succumbed to phylloxera, left the California wine industry a blank canvas. This was a crossing of the past and future of the wine industry as we know it. AXR has given winemaker Jean Hoefliger this same blank canvas. Jean is driven to push the envelope, challenging not only winemaking but life in general. With an insatiable appetite for art, philosophy and good discussion, Jean thrives when his creativity and passion is left unbound by conventional thinking.

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Palmer Emmitt

Palate is loaded with syrupy but not quite cloying red fruit and an abundance of oak that is well-integrated - a big, modern, polished Napa Cab in a really good place at the moment. — 3 years ago
