The Franklin, City of Riesling and MyNorth Food & Drinks Editor, Tim Tebeau, welcome Napa Valley winemaker, Sam Smith, for a special Spring Mountain Feast.
Sam Smith carries forward the legacy of his father, Stuart, and uncle, Charles, who first planted cabernet and riesling vines in the red Aiken soils atop Napa Valley’s Spring Mountain nearly fifty years ago. Renowned by critics and collectors for making serious, nuanced wines from the ‘mountain fruit’ grown in their high-elevation vineyards, Smith-Madrone’s benchmark bone-dry riesling and intensely concentrated cabernets achieve charm and longevity through structure deftly balanced with acidity.
Sam will guide us through his wines, including the winery’s coveted Cook’s Flat Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, as they are served alongside a decadent family-style feast prepared by Chef Myles.
