While visiting Champagne I was floored to see winemaker Dan Petroski’s Instagram post from his tasting group in Napa. Dan drinks a LOT of great wine and he makes a LOT of great wine!
He organized a side-by-side blind vertical tasting of our Sanford & Benedict Chardonnay alongside my mentor Jean-Marc Roulot’s Meix Chavaux Chardonnay. Dan’s Massican wines are inspiring examples of what food-friendly and age-worthy Italian white varieties can be. Both Massican and Sandhi began with the 2009 vintage!
His efforts at the historic Larkmead Vineyards demonstrate what benchmark, old-vine, Napa Cabernet can be at its very best.
