The last time we were challenged to a smackdown was the Judgment of Paris wine tasting of 1976, when Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars and Chateau Montelena beat France’s big-gun wineries in a blind tasting that put California
wine on the global map. And while our blockbuster reds are indeed legendary (Screaming Eagle, Shafer, Sloan), there’s more
to Napa than pretty cult Cab. Think peppery Turley Zinfandel, Paloma’s rich Merlots, and ethereal Sauvignon Blancs from Randy
Mason. Think win, win, win.
