Napa Valley has enjoyed a string of magnifi cent vintages, culminating in one of their greatest to date, the remarkable 2015's. Yet, beyond Napa, there are many other reasons to be excited, as Sonoma and Santa Barbara continue to benefi t from renewed energy and the injection of an entirely new breed of forward- thinking winemakers. This has resulted in a vast selection of Cabernet and blends that are setting records with their scores, but also represent amazing value. What's more, the entire category of Pinot Noir, from California to Oregon, has exploded on the scene with a level of popularity that has never been seen before. and then there are the Rhone varieties, the zinfandel blends and a focus on California's heritage vineyards, with vines over 120 years old. The scores have been rising, the press has been going wild, and excitement among collectors has never been higher. However, there is a silver lining. With all of these amazing vintages, new producers and previously undiscovered locations to speak of, there has never been such a large selection of great wine available to consumers. Join us in discovering the New World.
