We had some special friends over for dinner on Thursday. We prepared short ribs in a French style. We then compared the 1998 CC (it’s the oldest CC I have) vs. a 1990 Margaux. One of our guests fancies himself as a French wine kind of guy. I prefer American Cab, but I do appreciate a great Margaux. Both wines were fantastic, but everyone agreed that the best was the Clark-Claudon. It was really obvious. Thought you should know!! (but then I bet you already did).

We found these relatives through our wine!
Cabernet for Care raises money for Run for a Cure at the Pink Ball in Tokyo.
By the time the last gavel came down on Premiere Napa Valley; a record breaking $3.2 million had been raised!!! That is 31% higher than last year. Our 2010, five case barrel lot went even higher; 40% higher than the 2011 event!
Held last weekend, Premiere Napa Valley welcomes national and international trades people who come to enjoy Napa Valley hospitality and to taste upcoming wines and unique barrel lots. The event culminates with an exciting, fast moving auction where the trade bids on the lots they plan to sell to their customers.
The event is always a dependable barometer of how the industry is fairing. Given the incredible results, Napa Valley is up and Clark~Claudon is way up!
