Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 90

($150) Good deep ruby-red. Black plum, coffee, mocha and exotic underbrush on the nose, complemented by toasty oak. Suave, firm and distinctive, with Graves-like flavors of plum, redcurrant, hot rocks, gravel, Cuban cigar tobacco (Montecristo #2?) and fresh herbs. Not thick or supersweet; in fact, there's a delicacy about this wine. Helen Turley planted this vineyard and made the 2004. Current winemaker Philippe Melka describes this Soda Canyon site (south of Stags Leap) as "a less extreme, more temperate climate, and an area where the climate has less of an impact on the vintage." Finishes with firm, slightly drying tannins.

About This Producer


Charles and Shirley Roy began their life as vintners in 1999 when they moved to Napa from the East Coast. They asked the noted viticulturist Helen Turley to develop their 17-acre Soda Canyon site, and planted it to the Bordeaux varieties Cabernet, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Under the direction of winemaker Philippe Melka, the winery produces a Proprietary Red and Cabernet Sauvignon. Production is small at less than 300 cases for each wine.
