Celia Welch….just pause a minute, commit that name to memory. She is now my favorite winemaker, #1 on Gerald’s Top 10 list of winemakers, if there were such a thing. She is phenomenal and has really started to dominate the cult wine scene. Celia Welch is the winemaking brilliance behind many top Napa Valley wines including Scarecrow, M Etain, Hollywood & Vine, Barbour to name just a few. She also has an incredible wine that she owns called Corra. We only get a case a year of her wine and we have 6 bottles left of the top rated 2015 vintage.
Scarecrow is around $600, this is $160. Trust me, you won’t be disappointed. Buy yours now, only 6 available!!

Celia Welch’s 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon is off the charts. Dense, plush and alluring, the 2015 makes a strong first impression and never lets up. The move towards using more fruit from Pritchard Hill is one of the many decisions that gives the 2015 its incredibly vivid, distinctive personality. Super-ripe red cherry, raspberry jam, espresso, herbs and wild flowers are some of the many notes that develop over time. Moreover, the 2015 has a level of freshness and vivacity that I don’t recall seeing here in the past. At times, the wine’s aromatic nuance suggests an elevated presence of Cabernet Franc. The interplay of exotic ripeness and energy is simply compelling. What a gorgeous wine this is.
