The Story:


Benoit Touquette might be the #1 undiscovered talent in Napa.  He was Andy Erickson’s right hand man, at Screaming Eagle producing many 98-100 point wines! Benoit is also the protégé of the world’s top consulting winemaker Michel Rolland.  All three were at the helm of Ovid producing their wines for some years. His “Fait-Main” label, which translates to “Hand-Crafted” is a 125 case production Cabernet based blend project.  I’d say that a new star is born!

The Wine: 

The 2014 Fait-Main “Teeter Totter” Cabernet Sauvignon blend with its opaque ruby/purple-color exhibits tons of fruit on the nose: crème de cassis, blackcurrants and blackberries intermixed with notes of baking spices, lavender, graphite and licorice. It is big, bold and full-bodied, round and juicy loaded with black stone fruit, a touch of cigar spice and a hint of figs on the long, silky finish.  This is a wine that could be drunk now or over the next decade.  Limited production!
