The Story: Three great friends – One goal: to create something worth appreciating, like the time they’ve spent together. They searched for an area rich in heritage, resources, and committed winemakers which took them 2,297 miles west from their homes in Kentucky to Napa Valley. They traveled to California time and again. Wine was shared, stories were told, and their idea was born.  At the helm is Thomas Rivers Brown, one of Napa Valley’s most distinctive and acclaimed winemakers.(FYI: Post Parade refers to the moment when thoroughbred horses walk onto the racetrack minutes before stepping into the starting gate.)

 

The Wine: Amazingly intense wine from start to finish. Dark purple hue and stunning aromas of black stone fruit, chocolate and a touch of toastiness greet you on impact. This is an extraordinarily well-crafted wine that is lush on the palate, loaded with gorgeous jammy black stone fruits, chocolate, a touch of espresso and toasty vanilla that are in-sync with the right touch of acid.  The wine lingers on the finish for a good 30 seconds!  


Jeb Dunnuck (formerly with Robert Parker) 95 Points: "Made by Thomas Brown, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon comes all from valley floor sites and spent 20 months in 92% new French oak. This beauty shows the forward, seamless, incredibly sexy side to this great vintage and gives up loads of ripe currant fruit, Christmas fruitcake, spice and dried flower-like aromas and flavors. It has a ready to go style, yet is also seriously concentrated, with fine tannin, so it should keep nicely for 15-20 years."
