Tasting Notes

Rarely do we find a “secret” winery in Napa Valley built on a story of love and commitment. Donald Platz is a winemaking legend of California, having owned and run “Platz & Hall” until obstinately retiring in 2016 when he sold the winery. He was hiding a secret though, having felling love with Jung Min Lee, an avid lover of Bordeaux and Cabernet Sauvignon. He had made a promise to her, that if she came to California to live with him he would make his first Cabernet Sauvignon with her. He fulfilled this promise by starting Secret Door. A winery dedicated exclusively to Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon from the finest parcels the valley has to offer.

"Having personally tasted these wines I can say that they outperform many top of the top wines of Bordeaux, and pulverize the majority of Napa Valley cult labels, delivering one of the most profound drinking experiences I have had drinking Cabernet Sauvignon in years." - Sam Fritz Tate, Sommelier, WineOnline.ca

Each mixed case has three bottles each of two of the most iconic vineyards in the Napa Valley. The Sage Ridge vineyard is perched high on the hills to the east of St. Helena. The thin soils and hillside location make the vines work hard to survive and create grapes with great density as well as potentially powerful tannin/structure. This is Mountain Napa at its best, with the power and grip to age at least two decades. The legendary Hirondelle vineyard has been safeguarded by multiple generations of the Goelet family. Its cool microclimate allows grapes to ripen slowly and evenly, producing silky tannins, concentrated flavours, all while retaining incredible natural acidity. These qualities make for wines great now, but that will improve for decades to come. Put simply -If you are seeking the absolute best in terms of quality, power and unmitigated opulence, Secret Door’s Hirondelle Cabernet is the final stop.

WHAT'S INSIDE THE BOX?

3 bottles x Secret Door Hirondelle Vineyard Stags Leap Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
The fantastic 2018 vintage is going to be a long lived wine. A hallmark of the Stags Leap District is early accessibility. Aromas/Flavors of cocoa, blackberry, sage and Asian spice - drink now but better in 5+ years, potential for decades of aging ahead.From the world famous Stags Leap District of the Napa Valley. This silky, textured and complex wine will drink well in the next few months but will gain significantly over the next 3-5 years with a horizon for drinking in the decades to come.

3 bottles x Secret Door Sage Ridge Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
This vineyard is perched high on the hills to the east of St. Helena. It was planted in 1998. There is no current sub-appellation and it carries the “Napa Valley” banner proudly. Sage Ridge Vineyard is actually a series of small plots that run along the ridgelines. It offers a lot of diversity both in soil types and it exposures with plots facing in essentially all directions. Sage Ridge Vineyard is owned by Judy Jordan of J Winery fame. She has committed her team to a major renovation and elevation of this site which will be ongoing for several years. We chose on parcel to begin our adventure at Sage Ridge that is approximately 1.2 acres planted to a selection of Cabernet Sauvignon taken from Martha’s Vineyard. The thin soils and hillside location make the vines work hard to survive and create grapes with great density as well as potentially powerful tannin/structure.
