Announcing Vinous Napa Valley Vineyard Maps

Today I am thrilled to announce our latest project. For the last few years, we have been hard at work on a set of maps that show the vineyards of Napa Valley in unparalleled detail, parcel by parcel and owner by owner, like never before. The day has finally come to share that work with you.

The private dining room of David Chang’s Momofuku Ko was the site of this recent birthday dinner. The food and wine were both terrific, but as always, it’s the people who make an event special.

Vinous Favorites

2015 Domaine de la Bastide Côtes-du-Rhône Rosé Figue ($17) 90 points

2015 Domaine de la Bastide Côtes-du-Rhône Rosé Figue, 90 points

Fresh red berries and candied rose notes on the nose and palate. Juicy, seamless and energetic in style, with minerality adding back-end lift and focus. Develops slowly and echoes the floral note on a long, seamless finish. Quite a value for a top-notch rosé from a small appellation. (JR)

A Duo of Piedmont 2004s

Two thousand four has long been one of my favorite vintages in Piedmont. The Nebbiolo perfume that lifted into the sky in the weeks following the harvest was pure seduction. In barrel and later in bottle, the 2004s have always been exceptionally finessed wines. After having tasted quite a few 2004s in recent months, I was tempted to open these two wines.
