Fine (free) cab tasting this Friday in Napa

Posted by dmcker, Feb 1, 2011.

Wish I could make it--looks very, very interesting:


world's end wines from vigneron jonathan maltus

For those of us who live and work here in wine country, we can feel like we've heard it all. We already knew about that change up at a well-known winery, and everyone already heard about that new Cabernet project, right? Prepare to be surprised, locals (and wanna-be locals). We have a sparkling new project for you. 

Jonathan Maltus is a celebrated vigneron and winemaker, whose Château Teyssier is a Saint Emilion Grand Cru, situated in the heart of the Saint Emilion Appellation of Bordeaux. We proudly included his 2006 Le Dome in our Kahuna Club

When it was time for Maltus to launch his new Napa wines, he reached out to ACME, and we were overjoyed with the quality and pedigree of these beautiful wines. We included these selections in 3 separate blind taste tests at ACME, and each time our panel of tasters found these wines to be head and shoulders above some very worthy competitors.

Please join us this Friday, February 4th for the premiere pouring of the World's End portfolio, featuring...

World's End, Good Times, Bad Times, To Kalon Vineyard, Cabernet Sauvignon, Oakville 2008 - $105

World's End, Crossfire, Missouri-Hopper Vineyard, Cabernet Sauvignon, Oakville 2008 - $90

World's End, Wavelength, Sugarloaf Mountain Vineyard, Cabernet / Syrah, Napa 2008 - $72

If the purpose of our complimentary Friday Night Pulse Tastings is to keep you informed about the most exciting and delicious new wine projects in the Napa Valley, then we are knocking it out of the park with Jonathan and these amazing wines. 

We hope to see you this Friday from 5 PM - 7 PM, at 1080 Fulton Lane in Saint Helena. Please call 888.963.0440 for questions or to place your order. 

With thanks, 

ACME Fine Wines

Flat ears, jaded eyes? Nobody going to Napa?

Heard from another source this winemaker was worth checking out. Haven't had the chance yet, and would be interested in hearing if anyone else has...

I just happen to be in the Napa/sonoma area this week! 

Will try to ck it out.. thanks.

Think you were right to follow up on this, as this doesn't really jump off the page.

But at second glance, we have a St. Emilion Grand Cru winemaker making his debut in Napa, with some apparent early success in blind tastings...the names of the wines do seem pretty horrid but this does look like a very interesting IPO...

Jon, Acme is almost always right on the money. Get on their list and you'll find a lot of interesting new stuff going on in that valley and its environs.

NG, finally, you might actually make such an event?  ;-)    Would love to hear your reactions....

Anvil squashes, long falls or explosions, which your favorite mode of self-destruction for the trickster?

A winemaker fiend of mine went to a Maltus tasting in St Helena last night. He had very high praise.
