The Story: Within a few months of becoming the ninth Master Sommelier in the United States, Larry Stone became the first American to win the prestigious Best International Sommelier in French Wines competition in Paris. He continued as a restaurateur and sommelier at the Four Seasons, Charlie Trotter’s, and Rubicon Restaurant. After leaving the restaurant scene Larry worked on various wine ventures, before settling in Oregon and creating Lingua Franca.  Add Burgundy Consulting Winemaker Dominic Lafon and you have a winning team!


Winery Notes: “The fruit for this cuvée comes from one of the oldest vineyards in Oregon, with rocky, Jory soil. It was hard to work with, but after 14 months in barrel, it has been tamed, showing medium weight, with red and black fruit and some crystallized preserve notes. The finished wine is round, smooth and gamey, with plum dumpling and spice flavors and dark undercurrents of smoke, tar, flint and roasted meat.
