Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 92

($125) Good deep, full ruby. Musky, wild aromas of minerals, truffle, smoked meat and caramel reminded me of Pomerol. Lush and savory in the mouth, with a rocky quality adding complexity to the slightly grapey dark fruit flavors. Not a wine of huge depth, but potentially the best release yet from this property, offering plenty of sex appeal and sweetness. Winemaker Philippe Melka notes that this is a cool site, harvested early.

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.
