Tell me no lies ?

Ask any winery in need of a winemaker, and Aaron Pott would surely be at the top of everybody's list. And why not?...Not only does he have his degree in Enology, which he earned from U.C. Davis, but he has helped to make wine at Newton, Troplong Mondot, and La Tour Figeac. Currently, he is the consulting winemaker at a select few illustrious Napa Valley wineries, including Blackbird, Fisher Vineyards, Krupp Brothers Estate/Stagecoach Vineyard, Quintessa, Quixote and Seven Stones.


This bottling comes from White Cottage Ranch on Howell Mountain. From the sought after Aiken soils that produce wines of beautiful density and intensity, this wine displays tobacco, black cherry, cranberry and black current, leading to an explosion of flavor on the palate. The beautiful density is balanced by a long, supple textured finish.

( Only 250 Cases Produced)
Fuil-bodied, well-balanced, and with typical mountain-grown tannin structure, this beauty will age well through 2015 and beyond!
Available at Mercy for $180 / bottle.
