Spottswoode Winery to Pour at Wally’s Napa/Sonoma All Stars Event! This year’s Napa Sonoma All Stars event on Sunday, April 13, has all the makings of another classic: the opulent Hyatt Regency Century Plaza Hotel in Century City will allow us to spaciously showcase over 100 amazing wines – and the winery owners as well as winemakers will also be in attendance. Wally’s Cheese Box will provide cheese and bread, and for $75 in advance this is going to be a true deal for wine lovers with a list of favorites, and those without a “go-to” list letting them know where to queue up! Every winery will pour two wines – giving everyone a chance to experience different flavor and texture profiles from the same winemaker. And yes – discounts will be offered for those who wish to purchase.
We have always had great pride in the quality of our participating wineries in this yearly showing of California’s best, as we’re proud to showcase them all – on our shelves as well as this event. One standout is the esteemed Spootswoode of Napa’s St. Helena – a certified organic producer of miniscule yet coveted amounts of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Sauvignon Blanc from their 40 acres (they also bottle a Syrah which is grown in the Sonoma Coast AVA). Releasing their inaugural vintage in 1982, this family owned Estate was founded in 1882, and is home today to the beautiful Victorian Estate so elegantly depicted on the label.
Their 2011 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon and 2012 Sauvignon Blanc will be poured, and we expect nothing less than the usual excellence – their 2010 Spottswoode Cabernet Sauvignon (available in our store) received the ultimate endorsement, that of an insurmountable score of 100 points from Robert Parker himself. I personally can’t wait to taste the 2011 as the label defines the essence of a classic Napa Cabernet – rich with an elegant balance of depth, smoke and sweetness – and you can’t forget that these will blossom in the bottle – as it’s a mere infant! Take our word for it – if you love the wines offered at the All Stars – pick up a discounted case (or two) for the coming years – as they’ll be ready when you are.
You can taste wines from Spottswoode as well as wines from 100 other Napa/Sonoma producers at Wally’s All Stars Tasting Event. All for $75! Tickets at the event are $100 so save now! – Buy Here
