WINERY NEWS -Caldwell-

If you’ve come to visit me in the cave in the last 18 months, you’ve had the pleasure of tasting the BRION Cabernet Sauvignon made by my good friend and business partner, Brion Wise. For those of you who haven’t visited, I thought it made some sense to make a proper introduction.

We’ve been making the BRION Cab at Caldwell for 8 years now and it just keeps getting better. If you want to taste the new 2009 vintage, I keep a few bottles on hand here at the cave. Brion recently added a new dimension to his project by hiring the very famous Mark Herold as his consulting winemaker. . . . What’s so cool about this arrangement is that Mark started buying Caldwell Cabernet fruit for MERUS back in 1998, so he knows my vineyard really well.
