His early exposure to wine in Ohio, and then international travel provided him the wisdom and intelligence to make his next move: Tom the Vintner. In 1970 he and a friend were visiting Napa Valley and stopped at Beaulieu Winery. They happened to arrive just after a shareholder lunch, when library Cabernets from the ?30s, ?40s, ?50s and ?60s were available to taste. It was a seminal event in the young pilot?s life. In Tom?s words, he ?heard the wolves baying in the woods? when he tasted these outstanding wines: the Napa Valley was calling for him.
The 2014 growing season was marked by kind weather, a few curveballs and an abundant crop. The winter was one of the driest on record, but heavy rains before bud break gave the vines a well timed drink. The dry winter produced berries smaller in size, but more concentrated with flavors, and an earlier than normal harvest showed immediate promise of high quality. Gorgeous black fruit, gravel, violets, black cherry, anise, juicy palate with nice structure and velvety tannins along with chocolate flavors. Finishes with very elegant bittersweet tannins.
