For years, Pam Starr (Crocker & Starr, Adastra) and Drew Neiman (previously assistant winemaker at Kongsgaard and Arietta) have been crafting exceptional wines under their own labels. Now they have joined together for the new release previously known as Bridesmaid.
95 Points Jeb Dunnuck: "Moving to the reds and another insane value, the 2016 Cabernet Franc A.V.A Red Blend checks in as 60% Cabernet Franc, 34% Merlot, and 6% Malbec that spent 22 months in 50% new barrels. Black cherries, savory earth, currants, and forest floor notes all flow to a medium to full-bodied, beautifully balanced, elegant red blend that should be snatched up by readers. It’s going to keep for over a decade."
Robert Parker: "This is a brilliant project putting together blends that are declassified from other wineries…These are impressively put together wines.”
