Event Details

Bordeaux and Napa Valley – the world’s premier Cabernet wine growing regions.  Are they so different from one another?

Is Bordeaux, through the pursuit of ripeness, concentration, and new oak, becoming more and more like Napa?  Or perhaps Napa, under the signature of balance and elegance, is growing more and more like Bordeaux.

This tasting is aimed at exploring a thought – maybe not one that the vintners themselves would ever care to entertain – that Napa and Bordeaux are now more alike than ever.  Through a combination of wines, we will try and match the two, comparing new and old, traditional and modern.  For anyone exploring Bordeaux (or Napa) for the first time, this will be an eye-opening tasting.
