Cabernet Icons of Napa Valley: A Virtual Tasting of Mountain and Hillside Cabernets with Karen MacNeil
Posted: October 1, 2021
In California, only a very small percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon comes from high-elevation vineyards. And yet, these majestic mountain and hillside vineyards are the source for many of California’s most illustrious wines. Join Karen MacNeil—one of America’s most acclaimed wine writers, James Beard Award winner, and author of THE WINE BIBLE—as she hosts the winemakers from Brandlin Estate, Chappellet, and Turnbull for an unforgettable exploration of mountain and hillside Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignons.
During this virtual tasting, Karen will lead a lively and informative discussion with renowned winemakers Becky George of Brandlin Estate, Phillip Corallo-Titus of Chappellet, and our very own Peter Heitz, as they discuss the differences between mountain, hillside, and valley floor wines. Guests who pre-order the three iconic Cabernets spotlighted during the event will also have the opportunity to enjoy a curated tasting alongside Karen and the winemakers as they explore the regional differences between Mount Veeder, Pritchard Hill, and the higher-elevation vineyards of Oakville. Ideal for collectors, or for newer wine enthusiasts eager to learn about the great Cabernet Sauvignons of Napa Valley, we hope you will join us for this unforgettable tasting.
