Duckhorn founding, icon winemaker Tom Rinaldi & Eric Risch are crafting authentic & classic Napa wines on vineyard est. 1863, PELLET ESTATE

About this event

Pellet Estate is a revival of a Napa Valley ghost vineyard from 1863 lead by iconic winemaker Tom Rinaldi and veteran vintner Eric Risch

Come meet passionate vintner Eric Risch from Pellet Estate, Napa Valley, for an intimate, 5 wine (3 Cabernets!), limited seating tasting!

For our tasting Eric will talk about and taste us through these heavy hitters, of which there are very limited cases produced. This is a 'if you know, you know' kind of Napa story:

'21 Patent Wines Sauvignon Blanc, Napa Valley Yountville AVA - Retail $33

This will be a treat - not even available for sale on the site yet! Given the scores, it won't be around for long! 94 points Tasting Panel Magazine, 91 points James Suckling, Gold medals @ North Coast Wine Challenge, and @ the New York International Wine Competition. . . more coming soon!

'18 Pellet Estate Un-Oaked Chardonnay, Sunchase Vineyard, Petaluma Gap AVA - Retail $42

Only 150 cases produced! The cool ocean breezes & moderate sunshine, paired with fractured rocky clay soil consistently produces distinguished Chardonnay. This wine is crisp and full of fruit, and is aged about 8 months in stainless steel.

'20 Patent Wines Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley, Oak Knoll District AVA - Retail $68

Only 375 cases! Just released! This is the flagship wine and the genesis of what most great undertakings are – passion, and commitment to excellence. Cabernet Sauvignon with other classic Bordeaux varietals, Merlot and Petit Verdot.

'17 Pellet Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, Pellet Vineyard, St. Helena AVA- Retail $110

Taste a classic! "Sweet red berries, crushed flowers and sweet spices are all laced together in this pretty, silky, mid-weight Cabernet." 91 points Jeb Dunnuck, 90 points Vinous

'17 Pellet Estate Henry's Reserve, Pellet Vineyard, St. Helena AVA- Retail $150

"A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, the deep garnet-purple colored, scented of crème de cassis, blueberry compote and fruitcake with touches of earth, tobacco and Chinese five spice. The palate is medium to full-bodied with nice, ripe grainy tannins and a lively line of freshness lifting the ripe, rich fruit, finishing on a compelling savory note.” - Robert Parker. 93 points Jeb Dunnuck, 93 points Vinous

The fee includes the tasting! Only 40 tickets available for this event. All of our events sell out days before the event so don't wait.
